Capt. Shane O'Neal, who runs TowBoatU.S. stops on a chain of lakes in the Tennessee River, added a sixth location on Tennessee's Percy Priest Lake just one month after opening his fifth location on Watts Bar Lake.
O'Neal's TowBoatU.S. services got its start on Chickamauga Lake. It is now the fastest-growing boat-towing company in the BoatU.S. Towing Services fleet.
In addition to Percy Priest and Watts Bar lakes, O'Neal's operations include locations in Scottsboro and Rogersville, Ala., and on Tennessee's Nickajack and Chicamauga lakes.
O'Neal and all of his boat captains are Coast Guard-licensed and all six locations have response vessels fully rigged for marine towing and salvage work.
