Re: Anyone sailing Lake Pontchartrain?

Z, Yes Oak Harbor can be somewhat exposed. We spent "Katrina" there and were one of four to survive on our pier where forty were docked.. For the most part it is a nice harbor, and recently the prices have come way down. There are no more floating docks as they all left with "Katrina". During "Katrina" we were on a fixed pier and there was a 17' surge which caused the demise of all of the floating docks. That said, we have in the past gone through several hurricanes and tropical storms on those very floating docks. The only reason we were not on the floating dock for "Katrina" is because we waited too long to go to the marina, and all of the floating docks were taken. Had we been on one, we too would have been gone for sure.

The Gulf Coast is a wonderful cruising area, there are the islands, which you mentioned, and the wonderful area just east of Mobile Bay which goes all the way to Carrabell. "Pirates Cove" in Elberta, AL. is our favorite. All of this is within easy reach from Pontchatrain and Pontchartrain has some neat Bayous and rivers for over night anchoring and docking of it's own too. We love it and the water color starts really improving at Pensacola and is awesome around Destin. The bottom is very forgiving too and grounding is at worst an inconvenience.

Just called and found a few openings at the Bayou Liberty Marina in Slidell. Pics on the internet look good but we will be there in a week to check them all out . . .

Just to let everyone know, we settled on Bayou Liberty Marina - for now
Our boat will be here the middle of May and looking forward to being on the water again. Hope to see you all in the future . . .

I think Indian Landing has one spot right now. Good price and electricity and water.
