Sea Tow still services the Newburyport area. The local Sea Tow operation simply moved where they keep the boat.

Yes, I had occasion to request a visit from Sea Tow two weekends ago. I was 5 miles east of NBPT, they came out of Hampton. My battery was dead. They had me going in about and hour.

I would also check who the local operator is. I had Boat/US and changed to Seatow after the Boat/Us guy gave a client of mine a hard time about where to park in the Marina. It ended up with him screaming about 3" from my face.was a late October weekday and the lot was 80% empty. I went to Seatow and the gentleman who owns it was very pleasent. Hopefully I will never need it.

I just saw two idiots from Boat US off of Island Beach State Park, (boats 8 and 9) they were fishing (guess there wasn't any work) they drove right on top of every boat, drove right through the fleet- drove all over the bunker and boats that were fishing, racing their engines, . Very unprofessional- I have had sea toe for years- very good company- they have discounts for Recreational Fishing assoc memebers and many other clubs- check out their website or call 609 660 7777

Too bad there is no service offered for Chatham.
They surely do !! They saved my butt a few years ago when I was taking water off Monomoy. I lost both bilge pumps and the water got so deep that it killed the engine. Very bad situation. The Coast guard got there first and tossed me a hand pump, then Boat US was there shortly after them. I will never be without the service.

jerryk - 6/1/2008 10:35 AM I believe Sea tow insures any boat the card holder owns while Tow Boat USA only will offer service if the owner who is a member is on the boat. My #3 son owns the boat, if I go out without him and I have Tow Baot Im not covered, with Sea Tow, the boat is covered regardles if he is on board. Check this out.
Not true...

Every BoatUS towing level provides Towing Service for any boat which the Member owns, borrows, or charters. In these cases, the Member is considered the Captain and responsible for the care and control of the boat
What the boater should be aware of is how each(SeaTow and TowboatUS) franchise pays the captains that tow for them.

SeaTow gets to keep your membership fee, and the franchise owner is required to tow the member for free, getting only a percentage of the membership fee generated in his section. BoatUS, on the other hand, pays the franchise owner per hour or event for each incident.

I boated out of Newburyport for several years and had Sea Tow. Recently moved the boat to Kennebunkport and did a great deal of research on which company to go with and I decided to stick with Sea Tow...
