CD, if you are going to drop the boat on the Texas Coast - if you are going to drop the boat, hop in and go to FL, I would choose someplace near the Gulf i.e. Bridge Harbor in Freeport - not somewhere up in Galveston Bay, where it will take you a day to get to the Gulf. However, if you are going to drop the boat, hang out a month or so, then go - you're probably better off in Kemah or Seabrook where there are lots of slips available.

Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
