Capt. Jason Dyer, who learned to sail as a Texas 7-year-old at the Fort Worth Boat Club on Eagle Mountain Lake, spent more than 30 years as a professional mariner.

Now he has come back to his home waters and opened an on-water towing and assistance service for recreational boaters — TowBoatUS Eagle Mountain Lake in Fort Worth.

Dyer’s professional experience includes two years in the Coast Guard, six years of commercial fishing in the North Atlantic, eight years as a captain of private and charter yachts in the Caribbean, Europe and Atlantic Coast, and 13 years as a master of supply vessels in offshore oil fields.

He holds a Coast Guard master license and is an experienced diver.

“After so much time at sea, it’s great to be able to work on my own lake,” Dyer said in a statement.

The lake, a major Fort Worth area boating center that spans 13-1/2 square miles, has four marinas, the Fort Worth Yacht Club, five boat ramps and private docks at homes that surround the lake.

“It’s a busy place, and there has never been a service like TowBoatUS here,” Dyer added. “Everybody is really happy to know that help is always at hand.”

Dyer’s response vessel, which is based at the Fort Worth Boat Club, is a 19.5-foot Triumph 190 with a 140-hp Suzuki four-stroke outboard.
