I'm looking for towing insurance and want to know what your experiences have been with the various vendors. I am on the West Coast of Florida and typically will stay within 40-50 miles of shore. Thanks.

Junior,We use sea tow sarasota (Capt. Duke Overstreet) used him since 1984 excellent service.
I failed a power head 5:30 in the morning 5 weeks ago Duke was to me in under 90 min 13 miles out.

great thread Jr.I was wondering the same thing...Sea Tow or Towboat US?? What is the max distance offshore that they will respond?

Sea Tow all the way. Boat US will not go past 40 miles (I learned this the hard way when I was a member). Sea Tow has assured me that they will go to the Elbow or Middle Grounds to get me without any additional charges. I broke an engine mount last fall about 35 miles out, and Sea Tow was there in 2 hours. If I wouldn't have had Sea Tow it would have cost me $1050.

Is Sea Tow valid anywhere in Florida I wander? I'll drag my boat everywhere from Crystal River to the keys.
