A buddy of mine, doin' half a "Great Loop", broke down coming out of Little Sabine, in a high north wind, 3 footers in P-bay, the sound was not any better.He did not have Sea Tow or Boat US. He called me for help. There was no way I was going to try toresuce him in high seas. I called both to get the rates, I made special deal for him with one, only because.
The special deal cost him $600.00 from the mouth of Little Sabine in the ICWto Bayou Chico, Pelicans Perch f.k.a ( formally known as) Brown's.
Spend themoney, and buy which ever onefits your boating circle, both are awesome.
Do not think about, DO IT !!! PERIOD !!!
Do not leave the dock without it, unless, you are single, have NO loved ones and have a death wish.
