I currently have my small cruising sailboat on a lake near Dallas, we are now seeing the lake level rise so I should be able to get her out of the lake, for the last few months she has been high and dry!
Now that we are both retired I am wanting to put her back in salt water, so am looking for any recommendations of marinas on the Texas Gulf Coast. She is 27ft overall and draws 4.5 ft.

I don't know the marinas in your area but I do advise taking your boat to a yard for cleanup and maintenance before launching it again. To assure you don't get taken advantage of hire a marine surveyor to give your trusty vessel a through check-up, then decide what to fix.
No doubt a continuous prosperity, though spendthrift, is preferable to an economy thriftily moral, though lean. Nevertheless, that prosperity would seem more soundly shored if, by a saving grace, more of us had the grace to save.
