We are live aboards in Port Aransas, TX. We are at the Island Moorings Marina. I must say that it is great here. Super nice people, great live aboard community, great amenities and the prices are reasonable. It takes us about 40 minutes to sail to the gulf and this is suppose to be one of the best hurricane holes around. Thank God we didn't have to find out this year! We are about 25 minutes from Corpus where you can get everything you need for your boat and life. We've also been told that the water is much nicer here than in the Galveston area but it's nothing like the FL keys.
