Yes they do monitor CH16 also if you notify the Coast Guard they will relay the distress call.

If that was you all calling them on Thursday, I heard you call for them several times. They finally responded and tried to get you back several times, not sure if you ever got ahold of them or not...

You need to look into the particulars with Tow Boat US and Sea Tow. One has a longer free towing range and I believe it it Sea Tow. Check before you buy, or it could cost you alot of money afterwards.

The OLE help you outfolks!! I'm a member of Tow Boat U.S. Have been for 7yrs. Very pleased with their service.. I will not leave the dock unless mine is valid.. It's the best insurance one can have. I highly recommend buying the Unlimited Towing package. Heck ,Tow Boat brought me a battery 60mls. offshore oneday.. They let me come to the office to pay for battery several days later. If I had not had Unlimited Towing the battery would have been $1,800. Delivery fee can be high without Unlimited Tow.

after reading their site i think im going to go with the unlimitedgold. it says only out 25 miles. i dont see a plan that covers say 50 miles out not that i would go that far in my boat.

Can't beat Boat Tow. I have used it 3 times beyond the 30 mile point out of P'Cola. Twice on my boat and once on a buddy's boat using my policy. Also had a few blown tires they fixed. My bills combined for the 3 tows I am talking about ran @ 4000.00 Total. Cost to me was the yearly Dues

Read the details closely. P'Cola offers extended range beyond 25 miles
