We are at Island Moorings, in Port Aransas, the marina is great. The office is very nice and keep things clean. Bathhouse and laundry
facilities are good, high capacity clothes washing
machine makes for quick work after a wet offshore
sail. Docks seem strong and piling tall enough to take a extreme tidal surge. It is hot in the summer but good breeze. You can bike/walk to the beach.
We are looking to move to corpus but only because the drive from Austin is better.

Liveaboard Marina Recommendation Needed in Texas
As far as IKE, my pier was in the vid, my CD30 was not damaged except her dock
lines fused together due to the fantastic loads she was taking. Most of the boats that were on land was due to the piers giving way, the boats were properly prepped for storm, but if the pier gives way...
Folks from around there probably remember Bill, who rode
out the storm on the balcony of one of the destroyed buildings after jumping off his boat in the height of the storm. He says he will never ride out a hurricane
aboard a boat again. Whew, guess I'm still traumatized.
Anyways, Across a narrow spit of land next to all that destruction was Waterford, who suffered very little damage and no loss that I'm aware of. Their floating docks had at least 10-15 more feet before being in danger
of slipping the pilings. Waterford is completely surrounded by land except for a narrow north entrance.
