Great job Pete! Wish all the boaters were that concerned about each other! I always stop to check on others if theres something looking weird....while others i've seen dont even know theres another boat on the water with them

Great job Pete! I always stop and check if something looks a little funny with a boat when I'm out on the water.

I hope everyone that was posting on the "excuses not to tow someone" thread reads this.

It was a Team effort, and Chris Wimberg owner of the AO, and Jeff Cost were all ready to do what was nessesary. i would surely hope people would do the same, wether it is a snail boat cruiser, whatever.

Pete.. those guys were LUCKY !
Lucky that they had the sense to wear the right stuff and lucky that YOU had the sense to follow through when you believed that something was wrong.Too many people look the other way and pretend that they don't see.
I hope you never need the favour reciprocated but let's pray that 'what goes around comes around' !
VERY
ps .If it was me,you could expect a heavy duty delivery of heavy duty 'refreshments' !
