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.
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.

Thats what the statue of bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, lets club em to death
And get it over with and just dump em on the boulevard"
