Piracy is alive and well in Charlotte Harbor, Fl

Could someone please explain to me how identical boats ( Gulfstar 45's) both run aground during low tide ( both within the channel markers) one at the entrance to Burnt Store Marina and the other at Marker 20 in the Manchester Waterway, both spend the night in the channel because the tow operator could not move them. The next day Tow Boat and Sea Tow manage to free their boats, Tow boat charges the normal free tow and Sea Tow charges for salvage to a negotiated price of $10,000.00. I don't get it. Both were in virtually the same situation.
