Re: Wharf at Clear Lake Marina - Thinking of buying a slip

FYI, a few weeks ago, while the wind was from the north and cold, we went out to putter around the lake under power.

Marina del sol is notorious for being shallow (we keep our boat there), we made it out ok, but couldn't make it far enough into the lake to get near to the wharf (4.5' draft).

Being holed in like that for 5-6 months a year would drive me nuts.

Yea the shallow draft is another reason I've decided to not get a slip they and instead look at the portofino. I just need to find out the details with the east side and the pipeline that sailor man was talking about.

Re: Wharf at Clear Lake Marina - Thinking of buying a slip

If you are looking for a livaboard slip that is easy to get, then check out Bayland Marina just a little east of Clearlake. They were blown away in the blow but now they have replaced everything new and raised the pilings so nothing would happen. Also they only charge the slip fee and no Livaboard fee. It is a beautiful marina and no crime with police patroling the area day and night because the marina belongs to the cityof Baytown. That is where I plan on putting my boat shortly! If I were to buy then I would buy a canal lot and put in my own slip and have no fees. Just search canal lot ,galveston and you will see them. have a good one!
