Capt. David Lee Denz and his wife, Capt. Laura Denz, opened a full-time TowBoatU.S. operation at Jupiter Cove in Lake Whitney, Texas.

TowBoatU.S. Lake Whitney has a 25-foot Pursuit response boat. On-board is a full complement of towing and salvage equipment including extra fuel, engine fluids, pumps, and a battery "jump pack" to handle dead batteries.

The Denzs are U.S. Coast Guard-licensed captains and members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. It was while serving in this volunteer force that David Denz first began providing tows on the lake because auxiliary is often called upon by fire departments and law enforcement agencies to assist boaters. The couple now has several hundred hours of towing experience on inland and offshore waters. A third captain and two experienced mates round out the company roster.

The husband-and-wife team are also certified Texas Department of Park and Wildlife boating instructors and have taught several classes in the region. David Denz, a former surfer and Air Force combat veteran, also has recently opened a cruise and tour business on the lake.
