No Physical Address

I own a fishing charter that leaves and returns to the Cockroach Bay Boat Ramp in Ruskin, FL. There is no numbered address for this location, only a road name. I don't have an "office" and my home address is an hour away from my charter location. When people search for my business I want the actual charter location to show. How do I get my business verified? I can have the postcard sent to my home address, but will that affect how my business is searched?

Your business isn't eligible for a Google My Business page using that location. It falls under the definition of "An ongoing service, class, or meeting at a location that you don't own or have the authority to represent." (https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en) -- Technically, a charter is a service area business, so I would go that route and have a good map and directions page on your website.

Lots of people use boat ramps like this -- and the Cockroach Bay Boat Ramp already has a GMB listing (https://www.google.com/maps?cid=894226698738050904) you could link to on your own website.
