Going North during hurricane season

Need some help thinking through this one. My insurance company says I can save a lot on insurance if we move the boat from the panhandle up north and out of the coast and well inland. In the order of $2500 to $3000. We have family in the Midwest so we are considering moving the boat up to Kentucky Lake or Lake Barkly area. We would need to be gone to the north from next June first till I think October 31st. The savings would come close to paying for the round trip without dockage.

So my questions are:
1. Any that are doing this? Is this a good approach?
2. If we do this should we plan on using one marina as our home port and pay by the month, and make short trips from this marina? Or do a different marina each month?
3. Any thing we need to be aware of if we plan to go this route?

Thanks for your ideas....
