In the Great Lakes, it is generally understood that the CG will not tow. They will rescue by removing people but will not tow. Even if the boat is about to hit the rocks. This happened in Harbor Beach about 15 years back where a new boat was getting blown onto rocks. CG refused to save the boat, only the people aboard. Towing would have been relatively easy and towing companies were hours away.
