Re: Live-a-board marinas North GulfCoast
I would not rule out Mobile Bay and have lived aboard at Turner Marine on Dog River, and have sailed on it many times. While Mobile Bay is shallow, which raises quite a chop, it is not a problem for your boat for the most part. We never had a problem with our 5' draft. The winds there are usually from S or SE and I would call them average for the area.
On the positive side. Not far to the East are some of the finest protected anchorages on the Gulf Coast and just to the North is the Tenn-Tom waterway which many use as an escape during hurricane season.
