Next Monday’s program is by an enthusiastic guy, Capt. Doug Benjamin, owner of Tow Boat Seattle, on a subject that we boaters should be eager to and would be wise to learn as much about as possible BREAKDOWNS ON THE WATER! Doug is looking forward to educating you about these subjects and more:
What causes breakdowns
Things to do if your boat breaks down
Safety things to keep in mind
How to deal with towing services
Doug and Tow Boat Seattle
Doug has boated from his childhood on the Columbia. He has managed a marina and operated a mobile pump out. He owns a 36’ Grand Banks and a 22’ Sea Ray. Seeing the need for more towing services in the area, he got his Captain’s license and opened Tow Boat Seattle in 2017. They operate primarily in Lake Washington, Lake Union and Central Puget Sound areas and offer various vessel assist services such as distressed vessel towing, scheduled tow, fuel delivery, jump starts, soft ungrounding and more. A creative and safety minded guy, Doug added “pre BUI” services recently. If you have partied a bit much, you can call him and for a reduced fee they will tow your boat back home and for a very reduced fee they will captain your boat home.
