No question it was the right call Captain. In addition to the cold, wind and rough waters - the combination of shrinking moon and winds directly from the north, the low tide this morning was nothing like I've ever seen here. If we would had brought the boat and parked inside the marina here at Moorings we could not have gotten it out this morning. There only remains about 12 inches of water inside the marina (at the deep spots) and numerous boats are parked on dirt.
We are fine with any of the locations you listed, but you're dead on with Lanier being a great location for May/June time frame. We are in regardless and willing to help with any arrangements that need assistance.
I'm going to go drool over the dock for a little while now and try and get the water level back up.
