Carry Tow-Boat insurance.

We anchored off of Sombero Beach in the Marathon to watch the fireworks. The boats were real close, and didn't let out a whole lot of scope. We decided to stay the night, and a storm blew through, we dragged anchor into shallower water. The boat stood up on its keel for a while until another storm blew through and knocked us over. The tides were getting smaller so we were stuck for a long while if we didn't off. We called Tow Boat who heeled us over by pulling the halyard and the bow at the same time.
