When I purchased my membership of course I did not really have plans on ever having to use it but for the money I thought well why not just to be safe(we have 2 boats and a jet ski). However unfortunately we did have to use it very early in the boating season. The customer service and communication from the time I requested a tow via the app on my phone. They dispatch kept me in the loop as far as the ETA as week as the captain I spoke to several times mainly because I have no sense of direction but I was trying to tell him where I was on the water. He was very professional and help keep my calm. He and his wife were very professional on the tow back to the boat ramp. Not to mention they came in on there off day to tow us because there were several requests ahead of us and it was going to be at least an hour and a half before the other captain could get to us. I recommend everyone to purchase a membership if you have any plans on being on the water because you rather be safe than sorry.

Great Service End to End

I realize this forum is primarily for App feedback which I feel is solid. I would like to also use it as a forum to provide service feedback.

Having been a member since 2016 I recently used BoatUS for the first time. Thankfully not in an emergency situation. It went smoothly from end to end across several logistical variables.

Due to water ingestion in my port transmission I reached out to BoatUS for a dock to dock tow. It was a 24NM tow.

I contacted BoatUS via the app. Received human contact within 3 rings. (Gold Star). Phone agent was well trained and with just a few questions had me scheduled with my local BoatUS POC Captain Norm. Captain Norm contacted me with 20 mins of my initial call to confirm time/date and boat info. (Gold Star).

Capt Norm arrived exactly on time as scheduled. (Gold Star). As the total distance crossed two Ops Areas we were passed to another TowBoatUS Captain (Terry?) with local repor and contact with my destination ship yard. He put us right on the Haul Out dock.

Well done to all BoatUS!

We Love This Company

We’ve had them since 2016. They helped us once with a tow when we had an electrical issue, and a battery charge when I did something stupid (aka learning experience). Those two calls more than made up for the premiums. Even if we hadn’t used them, we save more than the premiums on fuel and marina discounts.
This is a great app that tracks weather, tides, small craft advisories and hurricanes. If you hit the “request a tow” button your gps pops up on the dispatcher’s screen. Every captain we’ve dealt with has been great - this service is a must for every boater.
