TowBoatUS Bay St. Louis has a new owner

Capt. Conrad Morris is the new owner of TowBoatUS Bay St. Louis, a 24-hour on-water towing and assistance service for recreational boaters.

Capt. Conrad Morris is the new owner of TowBoatUS Bay St. Louis, a 24-hour on-water towing and assistance service for recreational boaters.

With the reopening of TowBoatUS Bay St. Louis, Morris is on call to help boaters who have a mechanical breakdown, run out of fuel, need a battery jumpstart or a tow off one of the area’s sandbars.

Morris knows what it is like to get stuck on a sandbar in Mississippi Sound.

“It happened to me countless times when I was a kid,” Morris said in a statement. “Sometimes we had to spend the night waiting for the tide to come in — there weren’t any towing services around back then.”

Morris said he wanted to open a TowBoatUS port in Bay St. Louis to help his fellow recreational boaters since the previous owner retired, but the time wasn’t right for him until now.

With his wife Lindsey, who handles dispatch and office work, as partner, he opened the business this summer, basing his assist boat at Bay Marina on the Jourdan River.
