Seatow or BoatUS better in Buzzards Bay ?

Hi all,

I was wondering, are there any opinions on whether SeaTow or BoatUS provides better towing coverage in Buzzards Bay ?

Thanks!

Why bother choosing? If you have hull insurance, simply add a towing endorsement which is a very nominal cost and you can watch them race trying to beat each other to the job. Most underwriters change only a small amount for this endorsement, it gives you more flexibility, better coverage (i.e., no limit) and few if any underwriter would even threaten to increase your premium if you use this coverage.

Specific tow policies give some folks a feeling of comfort which I understand but there is no practical advantage.

Just curious, did you get your boat down to Marion or Buzzards Bay??? I just finished a delivery of a Gemini catamaran to Sippican harbor.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yep it's sitting in Burr Bros boat yard awaiting replacement of the rub rail and a few other minor details.

I was just down there yesterday checking out the mooring...

I think I saw it yesterday morning, when I was at Burr Brothers finishing up a delivery. It's on the hard south of the fuel dock IIRC.
