Default SeaTow opinions

Anyone have any opinions of SeaTow? Any Franchisees on the board? Anyone have any experience with them?

I signed up 2 pm one afternoon, and don't you know I needed a tow back in that night. Best $119/year I ever spent. For an extra $10 they will cover your trailer. I would highly recommend their service. $129 won't get you 1/2 tank of gas. Why screw up your friends day while on a poker run. Call Sea Tow.

LOL!!! I don't think you can. This was a charter my GF did for my birthday for the weekend in Catalina. Twin MTU's.....one smoked on the way back, later we were losing electrical (fly-by-wire controls) and about 1-2 miles from Newport it was taking on water with sirens going off. What an adventure! Two year old 64' Sunseeker. Never figured we'd get towed in to Newport! Didn't that look pimp!

I had it, was sinking and the dick head that was not more then a few hundred yards away never answered my calls. I had to call the coasties and get towed in. They said that the sea tow in that area was about useless and the guy should be fired. They did say however that they apreciated that I had it and that I was not relying on them to tow me in. So it was good to have in that the Coasties apreciated it.
