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.
Probably a good plan. I have never sailed the Great Lakes but I have marina hopped around north west Florida and just called a day or two ahead. Often the marinas that I have stayed at would have a security guard expecting me and when I got in late at night they would be looking for me and often would grab a line. Don't know that I ever left before the offices opened though, that may be a tricky point. Working out the payment I mean.
The couple of times that I have been in a hurry to get somewhere I just anchor along the way and skip the marinas all together. Not worth the hassle if I am not using the facilities.
Have a good trip!
