Enhydras is on a distinguished road
I am an independent tower who contracts with Boat US (we're vessel assist on the west coast). I charge $175/hr and I try to tow between 5 and 6 knots depending on the boat and sea conditions. My typical tow last 6 to 8 hrs. If you are not a member I require a working credit card number up front. For most people it's better to be a member, when you need a tow (sooner or later every one needs a tow, even me) you just call on the radio, give me your member number and I tow you home no fuss or muss. Also members have priority over nonmembers which can mean the differance of waiting 5 or 6 hours on a busy weekend.
