Thank You Tow Boat US of Beaufort!
12 May 2010 | Oriental, NC
A photo is worth a thousand words. Need I say more. Another thing on the list of "must haves"...unlimited towing with either Tow Boat US or SeaTow.
Upon our exit of Beaufort Harbor we found an area that has been shoaling in the middle of the channel. Picture it: We were cruising along chatting about how nice it had been in Beaufort and Wah-Bam! We are aground! And worse, on a falling tide. We wasted no time and quickly called Tow Boat US to come to our aid. It took the fella about 20 minutes to work us off and we were on our way. It was pretty quick and painless but could have been much worse if we did not have the insurance. The bill would have been over $700!
We are glad that this happened in the soft mud and in the US where we have resources to help. It could have been much worse. Instead, it is a great photo and memorable story.
