Once you get to the Corpus area, there's always the City marina.
Here's the fee link....

Pick up a copy of Campbell's Guide to Cruising Texas. It's out of print until late this year, but you should be able to find a copy.

Marinas from Galveston to Corpus Christi (that I remember), with daily rates. Galveston is tough, because of Ike:

Harborwalk (just past the I-45 bridge)
Freeport: Seaside is new, on the island side.
Matagorda - I've never been there, though
Port Lavaca - it's off the ICW, but should have transient slips except on holidays
Port O'Connor - If you draw over 5' you will get the T head, and no electricty. Kind of primative
Rockport - City Marina usually has room. Key Allegro can generally squeeze you in.
Port Aransas - as long as it's not a busy weekend, like Harvest Moon or a fishing tournament.
Corpus Christi - there's ALWAYS room here! Great marina, too.

Be aware that many/most of the marinas from Freeport east are either still not operating, or if they are operating, may be full, because of all of the Ike damage. Make sure you call ahead.

There is a fairly new one in Rockport called Cove Harbor. Here's the links:

Rates:

Wet slip is $1.50 a foot w/elec and water. Seems a bit pricey, but there it is.....

Just curious - their rates are double - nearly triple with 8 months prepaid - the rates in Corpus Christi. What do you like about Rockport that you don't like about CC?

Actually, it wasn't my decision, but I did agree to the mentallity behind it. My partner in this venture has the controlling interest and therefore the final say. Even tho the CC marina was cheaper, appx 285 total, Cove harbor's proximity to House of Boats was the deciding factor. As we have quite a bit of work to do, HOB is the best place cuz CC doesn't allow you to do your own work and neither of us has THAT kind of cash. It is possible that it will change once Baby's back in the water and we see what work is left to do. We have a long project list with quite a bit of cosmetic work and CC is not the best place for a DIY refit. Unless you know something I don't?

Nope. If you are doing it yourself, HOB is the place.

Cove Harbor

I talked to Cove Harbor yesterday about slips. The person that suggested the marina was with The Port A city marina, they have a 3-4 year waiting list, and CH has slips available. I used Active Captain to look at approach and channel access and it looked like the only route to deep enough water to sail or anchor out is south via the ICW quite a ways. I draw 5'8" and the water in the area is borderline at MLT. The marina is right off Hwy 35 and Rates are good. If anyone sails in the area please let us know where entry to the bays are and any anchorages available for weekend use.

Thanks
