Marina/Boatyard in Rhode Island to launch

I'm planning on heading to the Bahamas in the fall. I'm going to be getting my 36 sailboat to the east coast either by water, ie Trent, Erie Canals or by truck potentially. So I'm looking for a good trucker who I can afford that is going past the end of the canals and may be heading to the coast empty sometime in the summer. Many truckers are back and forth to the Newport, RI area so that may be where I will end up. If anyone has a suggestion as to a good place to launch I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Here are two marinas near Newport that could launch your boat:

Rhode Island Mooring Service- 78 Slip Marina in RI with Mooring Installation, service and Inspections. Dock Construction and seawalls built

Brewer Yacht Yard at Cowesett, Warwick RI

There are several more on Narragansett Bay, and there are several in eastern Connecticut that are not far from Newport as well. But you can start by looking at these two.
