Captain Brandon Meshey is the new owner of TowBoatUS Chesapeake City, a 24-hour towing and assistance service for recreational boaters in on the upper Chesapeake Bay area in Maryland.

In addition to the Chesapeake City location, they own TowBoatUS operations in Georgetown, North East and Bear, Md., covering the top of Chesapeake and Delaware bays and the C&D Canal.
