The Galveston Yacht Basin, 715 N. Holiday Drive, is more than a marina for luxury yachts and sailboats. It’s also the island’s secret neighborhood, home to an eclectic group of people who live aboard their boat. They call themselves “live-aboards.” And they’re a cordial group of people who are proud of their lifestyle and the advantages it offers.
One-quarter mile down to the dead end of D Dock, in slip D-92, you’ll find a 40-foot Sea Ray that’s home to Capt. Lonnie Tennant and Debby Kelley Fields. They’re recently engaged and their fresh romance is reinforced by their devotion to each other and by the support from their new neighborhood family.
