Package Deliveries

So I'm setting here at the marina, ready to pull out and waiting for package to arive, and was wondering.
If you are "On The Move", how do you work out where to have something sent to you if you havent been there yet ???????????????????

I hate to use a marina address somewhere down the line as it almost requires us to stay there..

Any Ideas?????

Re: Package Deliveries

What Lease on Life wrote, but in addition to the names who can pick it up, and the complete address, also have written on the package, "PLEASE HOLD FOR YACHT IN TRANSIT" This works in foreign countries, as well, and some places will hold longer than one month.
