It's not just the tow...it could have been helping the other boat untangle ground tackle, it's untying from that vessel, making phone
calls, waiting, hooking up the tow.... towing to a mooring ball and tying a tow off to it (heck, many chuckleheads can't do their own boat quickly let alone a tow), notifying authorities, returning to dock
...who knows what else YOU DON"T KNOW...so who says it was only an hour?
I've had many tows where I have joked with the tow how the paperwork often takes longer than the tow.
Like they say about assume.....
