VIDEO: It Comes With the Job - Right Place at the Right Time

Dear Friends: 

While BoatUS Towing Services is not a rescue or firefighting service, sometimes our towing companies are in the right place at the right time. Being the largest on-the-water boat towing network in the nation means we see a lot of stuff on the water.

 
When we are called upon, our towboat captains do their best to save lives or prevent damage to property.
 
Here’s a short video clip of some dramatic footage from Coast Guard Florida, a new television show on The Weather Channel that captures some firefighting work by TowBoatUS South Dade, Florida:

Thankfully, there was no loss of life or injuries. The 58’ Bertram was a total loss.
 
Safe boating-
 
Kindest,
Scott Croft
