Relocating to Gulf Coast MS

Was thinking of relocating our 46 sailboat with us, from East Coast of Florida. Anyone familiar with Biloxi area waters or best to leave boat in FL ?

There are about 10 marinas open here now. My best recommendation would be Point Cadet. Call the Biloxi Port Commission at 228-436-9312 for availability. The last time I heard there was a waiting list. I love it here,moved here about 2 years ago and have no complaints.

There is a great deal of active and competive sailing along the Gulf Coast from Texas through Florida with great people involved.

From the MS coast, you're within easy range of a number of interesting barrier islands, New Orleans, and some nice sailing destinations along the FL panhandle.

Whether you're racing, cruising or both, I'm sure you enjoy it.

Guessing at mast height, by boat length, in Florida, you'd be limited to Pensacola or Panama City. You couldn't get out at Destin, or go between there and Pensacola, because of bridges.

You also might check with these guys:
River City Harbor Marina Home
They're in Moss Point, MS, which is just a few miles east of Biloxi, and inland a couple miles, but there's easy access to the Pascagoula River. I spoke with them a couple months ago and they had 9 deepwater slips available. It's a bit more upscale in services, is in fresh water, and about a mile south of I-10. The only bridges you encounter are two high-rises and a single railroad bridge that stays open unless there's a train, so no waiting around or clearance problems. Oh, and they do mention being a "great hurricane hole" in their amenities page.
