Capt. Shane O’Neal, who owns TowBoatUS locations in Tennessee and Alabama, purchased two additional locations in Panama City and Destin, Fla.

O'Neal, a former Georgia firefighter who once got stuck on the water with his family when his own boat broke down, began towing other people’s boats on Tennessee's Chickamauga Lake in 2008.

“A lot of people think they can call a family member or friend to come get them anytime they break down, but I know from experience that it often doesn't work out that way,” O’Neal said in a statement.

O'Neal's eight TowBoatUS locations, the most for any single TowBoatUS company, are part of the nationwide TowBoatUS fleet of more than 300 locations and more than 600 towing assistance vessels.
