If you mean the Gulf of Mexico and not one of the other gulfs around the world then what general area? Last time I checked, assuming you are speaking of Marinas in the USA lining the Gulf of Mexico, it is, by my way of calculating, a pretty fer piece from Port Isabel, TX to Key West, FL. Just saying!
The pandhandle are to the Louisiana area. Don't know about this huge spill though, could be disasterous for a few years. But I was needing info on houseboat rentals (very long term), if the marinas actually had rentals themselves or you had to purchase one first. Thanks for all help
