Hello Troup,

Glad to have you here. Always nice to have an expert from the the towing side to talk to for when all those other boaters run aground. Of course it never happens to us.

Welcome Troup,

Maybe you ought to move your operation... to Sudan. Story going around of a boat about a year ago that lost its rudder just outside the port before it had cleared in. Sudan Navy comes up and offers them a tow, Greatfully received.
They get to port and the boat is impounded till the owner pays towing fee: of US$25,000!

They had to pay.

Welcome, Troup. I am at GL too. I saw you guys a few months ago trying to help the big Beneteau out of his slip in a strong ebb current. Glad to meet you here on the CF.

Welcome aboard. I had to use a competitor of yours out this way a few times and found him to be a consummate professional.
