TowBoatU.S. Shinnecock/Moriches, N.Y. was purchased by Capt. William and Joanne Jayne from Capt. Bob Jacoby, who will remain with the company as a hired captain.
TowBoatU.S. Shinnecock/Moriches has two locations. The Shinnecock port is at Hampton Boat Works in Hampton Bay. By water, it is adjacent to Shinnecock Bay buoy No. 15.
The Moriches port is at Moriches Bay Marina in Mastic Beach, which the Jaynes also own.
"Although we've had TowBoatU.S. located in our marina for the last four years, we are excited to call it 'our own' and add it to the list of services we offer local boaters and anglers," Joanne Jayne said in a statement.
The business has three response vessels that rotate through the two ports. They are a 25-foot Pacemaker and 21- and 25-foot Aquasports.
