Re: Experience with TowBoat US

I should have mentioned the Francisee situation in my previous post. I was in an area where there was an owner that tried to run a good business, but the territory next door was managed by what I can only assume was an alcoholic. I heard many a tale of woe with that guy, mainly in the form of not responding. I heard him once on the radio, sounding drunk, telling someone he wasn't coming out, despite the guy having coverage.

So, while I still have TowBoat US, I did ask around before signing up when we moved our boat. I would choose between TBUS and Seatow, based on what I could learn about the franchisee in my primary sailing area and hope for the best when I was away from home base.
