Floridian adds three more tow stations

Posted on

Following last year’s purchase of TowBoatU.S. locations on Lake George, Fla. and Lake Monroe, Fla., Capt. Matt Moss added three more towing ports to his portfolio.

 

The recent additions include TowBoatU.S. Palatka, Fla., located at Crystal Cove Marina, and TowBoatU.S. Crescent Lake, located at Leonards Landing in Crescent City, Fla. Both were purchased from former owners Jim and Beci McCall.


Moss also added a second port on Lake Monroe at the Boat Tree Marina.

 

Moss, who has lived on the St. John’s River for more than three decades, has equipped TowBoatU.S. Palatka with a 25-foot Proline and TowBoatU.S. Crescent Lake with a 21-foot Hydrasport response boat. TowBoatU.S. Lake George, located at the Blackwater Inn, has five response boats in the 21-to 38-foot range while TowBoatU.S. Lake Monroe at Monroe Harbor Marina has a 21-foot Wellcraft.

 

Skippers not familiar with the local waters can be challenged when boating on the St. John’s because shallows are often found just outside narrow channels, leading to groundings. Dense floating vegetation or weeds growing on the bottom also can be ingested into boat engine cooling systems, causing motors to overheat and requiring a shutdown.


Dropping off fuel and mechanical breakdowns make up many of the remaining calls for assistance, Moss said.
