Have you considered The Medway instead? It's far friendlier for ribbing and the marinas have petrol! Also it means you can pop round to Southend for the 'proper' start, rather than the parade from Greenwich.
we did the same trip with 5 Ribs two weeks ago. And I can say that Limehouse Marina is my favorite. Very kind staff and not too expensive. Between 13 and 18 pounds per night. Galleons Point Marina called 30 pounds per night though they have lower prices on their website. Maybe a "German discount" ;-)
The other big advantage of Limehouse is the central location. 2 min to walk to the next DLR station. For accommodation we did choose the Ibis Hotel in London Excel. Not too expensive and quiet nice breakfast.
Hope this information is useful for others who plan a trip to London.
