When you respond to more than 70,000 requests a year from anxious boaters calling for help to get home, speed wins the day. The BoatUS Towing App gives the on water and roadside towing service’s 24/7 Dispatch Centers instant boat location information that greatly reduces towboat response times.

Now the app offers upgrades including weather provided by Weather Underground and tide information, making it even more valuable to boat owners. The no cost app is available at the App Store and on Google Play, and BoatUS membership is not required.

“If you need a boat tow, fuel, a gentle pull off the bottom, or your trailer has a mishap, the BoatUS Towing App is your friend,” BoatUS Vice President of Towing Services Adam Wheeler said. “All it takes is one touch on the app’s ‘Call for a Tow’ button and we’ll have assistance on its way. The new weather information and tide predictions helps plan a boating and fishing trip, giving forecasts up to five days out.”
