Default Who is towing

I have seen several boats being towed. Even a toon towed by a jet ski.
Haven't seen Boat/us or any other private tows. Are they present on the lake or have they gone the Covid-19 way.

Only needed them once in last 5 years but worth every penny. Just upgraded to offshore too.

I still have warranty and my insurance both cover towing, thankfully.

Given that mine is a 2018 and with less than 100 Hrs, and the outstanding service at PBM, hoping I dont need to exercise my coverage any time soon.

Default SeaTow

Just had to use seatow this past weekend. I boat in FL and NH and have been towed 4x.....saved me thousands of dollars. Seatow or BoatsUs are impossible to beat!

Saw U.S. Boats last week in June? Coming out of the no wake zone off Bear Island on a heading for 3 Mile Island or beyond?
As for boats towing each other to us we feel there's an uptick this year, seen a lot!

I've always offered a tow to someone who needed it...And I've used US Tow two times, in the last 10 years, while other boaters passed me by...Bye, Bye.

I also stopped once to investigate a boat that was floating and seemed unoccupied. Thought they might need assistance...Uhhh...They did not!
