As part of our ongoing series of articles about holiday gifts for boaters, we would like to make another suggestion for a gift for the New York Boater in your life, what about a Tow Boat US towing package.
Towboat US, better known as the AAA of the waterways provides a variety of packages to accommodate any NY Boater. So have you ever been stuck out on the water? And wondered how you were going to get back to the dock? If it hasn’t happened to you yet, it will at some point in your boating lifetime. That’s why we started to research the private towing and salvage market. Towboat US is the leader in the private towing market. For as little as $79 per year you can take advantage of this service. With over 300 ports and more than 600 tow boats nationwide, they have the overall market covered. We had the opportunity to visit with two different towboat US captains recently who serve two very diverse geographic regions around NYS. Even though they are located in different parts of the state, they actually tell very similar types of stories regarding the types of calls they receive.Read more: Holiday Gifts For The Boater
