I have noticed in the marina I am currently in that the wait list really means nothing. They basically let you in if they feel like it or like you etc.

I think your problem is that you're trying to reserve space into the busy season.

I'm in Fort Pierce City Marina, and if you showed up now they'd have plenty of spots for you. However, you'd have to be gone by November, as the entire marina is booked full during the busy season until forever.

Don't know if that helps your plans any, except that you might be able to show up in August and make friends and somehow keep your slip into the busy season using charm or blackmail or something ...
