They are all crooks but you better have a membership with unlimited towing. I use tow boat just because sea blow screwed some boat racers a couple of years ago in miami.

I have unlimited fresh water towing with TowBoatU.S. The one time I had to use them I was very impressed with the service and a long tow from Put-in-Bay to the Detroit River didn't cost me a thing.

Ford or Chevy?

You'll get a thousands different opinions on this, but personally Boat-U.S. gets my money!

I tend to believe Boat-U.S. is the better, more honorable outfit based on my experiences and from my recollection of the majority opinion (at least what I perceive to be the majority) of others throughout my years of being a member here.

The additional good thing about Boat-U.S. is that they are so much more than just a for-profit tow company (cough, Sea tow). They are the boater's #1 ally and asset when it comes to government representation and lobbying, and your membership kit is chocked full of all kinds of additional discounts and benefits.

TOW BOAT US, they also were the cheapest to insure my center console through by far.

Tow-Boat US, Call and get the unlimited towing, and if your pulling a trailer get trailer assist, great insurance! Around here it seems Sea Tow is always trying too hard to turn every tow into a salvage job.
