Lake Texoma to Gulf of Mexico?

Is it possible to navigate a 40-45 foot boat that draws 3-4 ft. from Lake Texoma to Gulf of Mexico?
May go look at a couple freshwater motor yachts but would need to move to Lake Ponchartrain, Louisiana.

You can't get to the gulf by water, unless something has changed.

Not by water, but you can ship the boat. Keep in mind that any boat on Lake Texoma got there by truck, so can leave there by truck too. Some require removal of top or bridge or other items, most there don't.

I looked into this very thing once when we were shopping for our boat. We lived in Dallas and it was an easy way to show Ann a big Hatt in the FRP, if you will. It was a Hatteras 53ED that had spent its whole life, some 20 years, on Lake Texoma, and it was far from the biggest boat on the lake. You have two choices: truck it all the way down to Houston, or wherever (some very tricky routing involved for that particular boat) or have it taken a much shorter route to Tulsa, and take her on her own bottom down the Arkansas River. The latter was much cheaper trucking cost wise, but then you had to figure in boat fuel costs and facilities for recreational boats are very few and far between.

Any of the big marinas on the lake can help you out. Fresh water boats typically come at a premium.
