TowBoatUS operator adds two Florida locationsPosted on
Capt. Shane ONeal, who owns TowBoatUS locations in Tennessee and Alabama, purchased two additional locations in Panama City and Destin, Fla.
O’Neal, a former Georgia firefighter who once got stuck on the water with his family when his own boat broke down, began towing other peoples boats on Tennessee’s Chickamauga Lake in 2008.
A lot of people think they can call a family member or friend to come get them anytime they break down, but I know from experience that it often doesn’t work out that way, ONeal said in a statement.
O’Neal’s eight TowBoatUS locations, the most for any single TowBoatUS company, are part of the nationwide TowBoatUS fleet of more than 300 locations and more than 600 towing assistance vessels.
