TowBoatU.S. adds Georgia location

Capt. Benjamin Owens and Todd Campbell of TowBoatU.S. Lake Hartwell opened a second location, TowBoatU.S. Lake Richard B. Russell, at Beaver Dam Marina in Elberton, Ga.

The new port is located off the Savannah River at channel marker No. 9, and the company's service area includes all of Lake Richard B. Russell from 30 miles downstream of the Lake Hartwell Dam to the Richard B. Russell Dam.

At the helm of the response towboat is Capt. Anthony Barnett, who, like Owens, is Coast Guard-licensed.

Campbell came to the region in 1985 to set up a satellite location for the family's business, Campbell's Crane Rental. He was also a volunteer firefighter with the Anderson County Fire Department and enjoys working with terminally ill children through the Outdoor Dream Foundation.

Owens is a wildlife officer with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. An avid hunter and offshore angler, he's also on the board of the Outdoor Dream Foundation.
