Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
I have a storage unit with stuff in it that has become worth less than I've paid in storage. It's just an incredible pain to sell the stuff or even give it away. I have to drive there, show it to you, help you load it, match schedules, take pictures, advertise, deal with stupid scam replies, etc. Parting out a boat would be extremely time consuming. I'm not saying it shouldn't be done, but be realistic, if you consider it.
As for towing, you should definitely call around. That area is just staring to get busy, so you may find a tow company that would take a discounted big job, if you can be a little flexible. Shortly, they'll have no time.
The experience of getting a big scare from a marina, then nothing to back it up should concern you. I'm a huge critic of boat yards and could write a book on maladies over the years. There are fish in the sea of boaters that will just open the checkbook and authorize them to do whatever they think necessary. Boat yards are always trolling for that big fish. Don't bite.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
