Captain Adam Huth now has two TowBoatUS locations on South Carolina’s Lake Wylie.

TowBoatUS Lake Wylie in South Carolina has added a second location in response to the growing number of recreational boaters using the lake.

“We’ve got a lot of new boaters with the recent explosive growth on Lake Wylie,” said Captain Adam Huth, owner of TowBoatUS Lake Wylie, in a statement. “Including myself, we have four local captains stationed on Lake Wylie, greatly reducing response times and ready to help boaters 24/7.” All the company’s captains have U.S. Coast Guard licenses.

Huth grew up in South Florida and has lived in Charlotte, N.C., for 15 years. His boating career started when he sailed aboard tall ships and earned his captain’s license. He settled in Charlotte to start a family and built a business that served the medical community. Huth and his wife, Keirsten, who also runs TowBoatUS Lake Wylie response boats have lived on Lake Wylie for several years with their three daughters.

“I got into TowBoatUS to give a great experience to people who’d otherwise be having a pretty bad day on the water,” said Huth. It’s what I love to do. Occassionally boaters need a gentle pull when they’ve run up too far on a bar, or they’ll call for a tow back to a dock or ramp after a breakdown. Water levels can vary, and you can get stuck if you’re unfamiliar with an area. We’re ready 24 hours a day.”

TowBoatUS Lake Wylie keeps two response vessels on the lake. Both have their signature red hulls and TowBoatUS logos. They are rigged for towing, jump-starts, fuel delivery and soft ungroundings. Separate from BoatUS towing services, the company also refloats sunken boards and provides salvage services.

Boaters can reach TowBoatUS Lake Wylie by hailing on VHF channel 16, by calling the company directly at 803-681-0911, by phoning the BoatUS toll-free 24/7 dispatch center at 800-391-4869 or via smartphone using the BoatUS Towing App.
