TowBoatUS adds Tennessee location

Boaters, sailors and anglers who have trouble on Norris Lake in Tennessee can now call on TowBoatUS Norris Lake for help.

The location is owned by Mark Proffitt, who is also the owner of Marine Contractors, a full-service boat maintenance, repair and over-the-road boat transport business.

Proffitt has been boating on Norris Lake since he was 10, when his father gave him a small runabout. “I probably know the lake as well as anyone else,” he said in a statement.

He has a degree in engineering from Pellissippi State. One of his former jobs included working in research and development at Mercury Marine racing engines, which led to a career as a ChampBoat-2 class racer.
