Capt. Jeff Walters, a Coast Guard-licensed captain who started Tennessee River Towing and Salvage as a part-time enterprise several years ago, joined the nationwide TowBoatUS towing program with the opening of TowBoatUS Fort Loudon/Tellico Lake.

“Boating has always been my pleasure activity, so when I retired from industry I decided to make boating my second career,” Walters said in a statement.

Walters and his towboat are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help boaters, sailors and anglers get safely home whenever they have trouble on the water. His boat, a 21-foot Stratos with a 225-hp Mercury outboard, is fully equipped for most any kind of boater assistance.

The new TowBoatUS port will provide service to boaters on Fort Loudon Lake from Knoxville, Tenn., to Fort Loudon Dam, all of Tellico Lake and the northernmost 20 miles of Watts Bar Lake south of Fort Loudon Dam. The lakes are popular bass fishing and recreational boating waters.
