Need Temp Slip in Pensacola / Gulf Breeze?

Howdy All,
Having a great time reading here already! The Pearson is ready to go back in the Bayou (Chico) & I'd like to keep at a slip/dock for 3-5 days prior bringing back home to a dock nearby our house. Live about 400NM fm. P-Cola so it's 1 heckova drive. Coming over Wed.AM for final detailing & Splash...either Thurs. am or Fri. am. Would like to leave for possibly as short as "over the w/e" before returning (w/my already picked & chomping at the bit crew of fellow misfits) Monday (depending on weather predictions) to sail back this way. She'd be a fine addition to Your dock for a few days and I'll gladly compensate reasonably; vessel is in immaculate condition & appearance...won't be a "liveaboard" type sitrep (unless You consider a few hours below decks before departing "living"?). Anyone know of an available dock, reasonable for this scenario? 51' Mast Height AWL & Draws 4'7" board up. Please advise as time is tight for me...otherwise I'm anchoring in the bayou (have done so before, just not crazy about it, being 6+ hrs away, kwim? )

Aloha and Welcome aboard!
I hope there is someone in your area that can give you some information. Last time I was in Pensacola was 1969.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Thanks John,
Feels like Home already!
Still no luck in the search, bummer is over 35 marinas called...since the
storms ('04-'05) and marina conversions to private/condos, there isn't a single transient slip found fm. P-Cola to A-Cola yet. Haven't been sitting on my hands, however going "private" seems the only available option currently so the feelers are out everywhere. I just don't want my "shakedown" being 35-50 miles offshore for a 450NM distance SINGLEHANDING, even w/Autohelp(sic) & top shelf GPS/Chartplotter. It's just not smart imho as a lifelong blowboater. Staging, & crew far smarter. 2-5 days is all that's needed. Wish me luck...
