Re: Marinas while in transit

When we came up the Chesapeake from Norfolk we'd call on the cell around 2pm to the marina where we wanted to stop that night (by 2pm you have a pretty good idea how much ground you're going to cover that day). We used the Waterway Guide to pick our stops for the night and they took a credit card over the phone.

Never had a problem and this seemed to be pretty much standard procedure.

FWIW I think svHyLyte gave you some good advice on BoatUS towing. The first sail with a new boat things are likely to break.
