Capt. Gary Lewis Jacobs of L&G Marine Services on Lake Anna, Va., joined BoatU.S.'s on-the-water assistance network.
The company, which has provided on-the-water assistance to area boaters and anglers for the last five years, is now an official "listed tower" with the nationwide fleet of towboats. This allows BoatU.S. and BoatU.S. Angler members with on-the-water towing plans to receive and pay for services with just their signature required.
L&G Marine Services is at High Point Marina, adjacent to the Route 208 bridge.
A Coast Guard-licensed captain, Jacobs is a native of Widewater, Va., and has been active with the fire and rescue services of Fairfax and Stafford counties. He is a member of the Widewater Volunteer Fire Department.
Although L&G Marine Services is not an official rescue asset, its response boat is equipped with a high-volume firefighting pump to handle dock, boathouse and vessel fires at the request of authorities.
