When a boat offering assistance arrives on the scene, how do you know if the service is a “tow” or a “salvage” job? If you’re ever in doubt, ask the boat’s captain. There could be a big difference in the cost of each service and who will pay the bill, says BoatUS.
For a former firefighter low on cash, starting an on the water towing business home wasn’t easy. It was 2008 and Capt. Shane O’Neal had no capital to purchase his first towboat, but his wife, Stacey, did have the wedding ring Shane had given to her.
