How do you plan to get your boat out of Travis?

The new marina will not be wiped out due to the steel pilings are higher than the land so Baytown will flood 1st. It is easy on and off the freeway but it is the fartherest marina from Galveston. Slips are about 215 a month for 35 foot, so more reasonable and no crime here as the Police keep their boats here. Nice little store and good people. Bayland Marina, look it up on google.
have a good one!
That marina is actually already at the top of my list. The only drawbacks to it that I perceive are the distance from chandleries and haulout facilities but I guess I can motor between the haulout and the marina and I plan to keep my car till the last minute anyway

Re: Texas Gulf Coast

You are about an hour or so to Seabrook Shipyard and another half hour or so to Dickenson yard. All according to weather they do it or you do it. Clearlake has noise with all the cars and kiddie rides going all the time and traffic is pure hell. I just drive to the boat store and get what I want and a few minutes later back and there is a good ACE 3 miles from the marina plus free WIFI. They rent day or month to month or 6 months or year and give discount for yearly rate if paid in advance. About 10% I think. They have their on fuel docks and pump out docks also. Other than that you are good to go. A Marina should be peaceful and low crime and low lookie loos, kinda like a home, private but still approachable and not a tourist trap and all the other bs. JMHO =)
Have a good one!

Hopefully, if the lake doesn't get too much shallower, I'll have it hauled out and loaded on a truck at Emerald point. My boat will float in chest deep water

That will work for me.

You may get bothered by a looky loo when I get there. Love the Flicka...but I'll have a pint of Sailor Jerry's in my hip pocket to ease the pain
