BoatUS marks towing milestone

Posted on

BoatUS made its half-millionth dispatch this month to member Caron Collins and her husband, William, after their 28-foot cruiser had engine trouble early in the morning about a football field away from their home dock at Charlotte Harbor, Fla.

To celebrate the milestone, BoatUS is giving the Collinses a $500 West Marine gift card, a Delorme inReach personal satellite communicator and five years of BoatUS Unlimited Gold on-the-water towing with Trailer Assist roadside assistance. TowBoatUS Charlotte Harbor brought the couple safely back to their dock.

After they paid $350 out of pocket for a short tow in 1996, the Collins family became BoatUS members and added an annual “unlimited” TowBoatUS towing plan.

“Anyone who has a boat should have TowBoatUS,” William Collins said in a statement.

In 2012 alone, BoatUS’s three dispatch centers and towing fleet received 70,000 requests for on-the-water and on-the-road assistance.
