I guess what I'll try to do is go day-by-day and use my Active Captain information to contact the likely stop that night.
Do yourself a favor. Joint BoatUS for towing service (you may need it) and, with your membership you'll get access to a directory of cooperating marinas that provide discounts on services to BoatUS members. We joined BoatUS when we first moved to Florida ('92) and it has proven to be a valuable resource (although we've never needed towing service!). The discounts on slips and fuel can easily pay the membership fee (these daze a 25% discount on a transient fee can add up).

FWIW...
