Towing captains honored for heroism

When you spend every day on the water helping recreational boaters with unexpected breakdowns get back to the marina or launch ramp, eventually you’re bound to run into trouble.

That’s when the routine turns into a life-saving emergency, and like any Good Samaritans, the crews of the TowBoatUS and Vessel Assist towing fleets must act.

The on water boat towing service recently honored towing captains from Buffalo, N.Y., and San Diego, Calif., for their heroic efforts at a ceremony held at the annual BoatUS Towing Services conference in Clearwater Beach, Fla.
