Storm surge due to the slope of the continental shelf along the Gulf Coast makes no marina safe..Any major hurricane of Cat3 intensity is perfectly capable of bringing CAT5 conditions to any one area of the strike zone at any given time..Katrina was CAT3 at land fall yet produced a unheard of CAT5 surge of 30 ft in places...Do not let the cat numbers fool you...
