Kemah

I am planning to relocate to the Kemah area soon to live aboard and I'm wondering if there is a sailnet thread or group for that area?

Kemah here. The marina where I am requires the boat to be at least 41'!

I hear good things about Waterford Harbor Marina. The rates are on the high side though. Waterford Harbor Marina Rates

Also, check with Legend Point. Legend Point Marina & Condominium Community

Then, there's the Kemah Boardwalk Marina Untitled Document Nice, clean marina, with access to the boardwalk resturants. A bit noisy for my liking, but depends on the person.

Many more to choose from.

When we bought out boat, it was in Waterford. That was one really nice marina. Good facilities and friendly people. No, it wasn't cheap. We moved our boat to Port Aransas. We like Port Aransas much better. The sailing is nicer, we are close to the Gulf and the bay. The best part is the water is not the color of bad coffee like Galveston Bay!

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

I'm in the Houston area and if things continue as planned I will be living aboard in the Clear Lake/Kemah/League City area within the next couple of months. Good luck in your relocation, it's a great area to be in.

We're in the area. Keep our boat at Houston Yacht Club - north of Kemah.

I'm in Bal Harbor Marina on Clear Lake, welcome. I recently got my ASA cert and I am looking for sail time. I have power boated the Galveston area for years.

I live aboard in Waterford Harbor. It is one of the more expensive Kemah marinas. I pay $330/mo for a 35' slip plus $70 liveaboard fee.

I picked it because:

1. I am allowed to live aboard on a 25' boat
2. It had the nicest bathrooms out of all marinas meeting qualification #1

Portofino Harbour and Blue Dolphin also allow 25' liveaboards. Portofino was a strong candidate for me. Similar price range. Blue Dolphin is much cheaper but also much dingier IMO.

awesome guys, thanks for all the shouts out. We are coming to Kemah this weekend to shop the area for boats and scope the community.

Any of you guys going to be sailing this weekend?
