We had decent response from boatus on ICW.
A quick comparison (looking on their web sites) shows that BoatUS has same number of locations as SeaTow in North Carolina and twice as many in both South Carolina and Georgia. I did not check other states, but it is easy enough to do.

And of course BoatUS has a bunch of other useful services and insurance to boot.

It's really hard the say, but generally I would guess that in that area they are equally distributed. I am in the Nothern Chesapeake Bay and in my marina a Seatow boat is docked. In the marina next door is a BoatUS boat. I went with BoatUS because it was a little cheaper and you also get the benefits of membership.

BUS was my choice and never had cause to regret it. If it were a local deal...use whoever seems to have the better coverage in the area...but for the ICW...I don't think it much matters as both are always near enough. I give BUS my business cause it is a good org and they've treated me well on the insurance side and membership benefits over the years as well.

I am a very big fan of Boat US, just do not make the mistake like a lot of sailors do, get the unlimited owing, it covers you up to 25 miles from any of thier bases.

"get the unlimited owing, it covers you up to 25 miles "
