Duck opens another Va. towing portPosted on
Capt. K. “Donald” Duck opened his fifth on-the-water towing port, TowBoatU.S. Hopewell, Va., which provides tows back to a marina or launch ramp, fuel deliveries, battery jump starts, or ungrounding services for recreational boaters.
The USCG-licensed skipper also owns TowBoatU.S. locations in Portsmouth, Norfolk and Poquoson, Va., as well as TowBoatU.S. Coinjock, N.C.
TowBoatU.S. Hopewell is equipped with a 24-foot response boat, Any Time, which is stationed at Jordan Point Marina at the Benjamin Harris Bridge on the James River.
The son of a submariner, Duck (he got his unique name as a form of endearment from his high school coach and he’s kept it ever since) began in the marine industry in the 1980s working for his father-in-law’s marine business that repaired, sold and salvaged boats. In the 1990s, the pair became affiliated with TowBoatU.S., and when Duck’s father-in-law passed away in 2003, Donald took over the business.
He is known in the community for training local fire and police departments and also participates in the James River Parade of Lights.
