Capt. Lee Sykes, a former captain with the company for four years, recently purchased TowBoatU.S. Beaufort, N.C., from Capt. Rod Hoell.

The Coast Guard-licensed Sykes is a native of Mount Olive, N.C. A former EMT and charter fishing business owner, it was his love of fishing that brought him to the Beaufort area.

TowBoatU.S. Beaufort is in Knasty Harbor behind Pivars Island and adjacent to the Beaufort drawbridge.

The business has five response vessels: a 33-foot Zodiac with twin diesel jet drives; a 24-foot Lindsay; a 24-foot Carolina Skiff; and two Zodiacs.
