I can see why they'd want no wake.

Yes, Seabrook or Kemah,
We prefer Blue Dolphin because of the covered slip. If not, we liked Waterford Harbor Marina. We have been live-aboards in both places before.
We plan on getting to Biloxi/Gulfport Ms before X-mas and will stay about a month. Then we will head on to Seabrook/kemah area which will take us 2 to 3 weeks, depending on weather

Would be nice to connect.

Chattanooga is about 200 miles from Joe Wheeler. Joe Wheeler is Mile No 277 I think.
With shorter daylight, it could take 3 - 4 days. Summer time is 2 long days total.
Goose Pond Marina is a great 1/2 way point. Two short days would put you on top of a dam, I dont remember which one though but there are 2 possible places on your right to anchor out. or you could try to make it a long day to Goose Pond.

Then from there, to Wheeler can be broken into 2 days with Ditto Landing in between or just another really long day.

It all depends on your speed and how comfy you are in the dark with radar.

I dont have radar, so I need to be more careful in my planning.

Hope this helps.

David, here is a link to some very valuable distance charts so you quickly have a perspective. The TN River is on page 23

http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/n.../distances.pdf

Unfortunately the TN Tom isn't on it but here's a link to good TN Tom information.

Using the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway

Obviously charting gives you the best information and resources like Active Captain, but these are very quick references since a lot of travel on these rivers is lock to lock.
