TowBoatUS: Boaters Expected To Hit Season Opener in Record Numbers
On-water towing fleet could reach record volume of dispatches
for boater assistance this Memorial Day holiday weekend
SPRINGFIELD, Va., May 19, 2020 – Recreating outdoors has become an important survival tool in the era of the coronavirus pandemic, and recreational boaters are no different. The nationwide on-water towing fleet with more than 600 red response vessels, TowBoatUS, expects this Memorial Day holiday weekend to be a busy one, responding to an increased number of requests for assistance by recreational boaters.
“While there are some locations where recreational boating hasn’t quite returned yet, those will be the exception this Memorial Day weekend,” said BoatUS Vice President of Towing Services John Condon. “Boating is an approved activity and boaters are social distancing, so we believe they will be on the water in a big way, trying to get to back to what’s familiar and enjoyable with the family.”
Condon predicts calls for assistance over VHF channel 16, cellphone and via the time-saving BoatUS App by recreational boaters experiencing engine breakdowns, dead batteries, running aground or needing a tow home will be up 20%. “We think that’s a conservative number,” he added.
Calls for assistance to BoatUS’s 24-hour dispatch is a traditional barometer of the nation’s on-water boating activity.
To prevent having to call TowBoatUS for help, ensure your boat is ready to go and spring commissioning is fully completed. Breakdowns this early in the season are often attributed to rushing to get the boat in the water.
If you’re trailering to the launch ramp for the first time, BoatUS dispatch reports the No. 1 request for roadside Trailer Assist service is for flat tires/no spare. Wheel bearings and trailer axle troubles follow, so be sure all three of these are up to snuff before you go.
What to do if the best laid plans collide with the unexpected? Be prepared by having a BoatUS on-water Unlimited Towing membership for freshwater boaters for just $85 per year or $159 for saltwater boaters. Included are more than 25 benefits and discounts, a subscription to BoatUS Magazine, free DSC-VHF radio registration, and more. Boaters without a towing membership face an average nationwide cost of $750 per towing incident.

📍Curbside pickup and drop-off for businesses
📍Elective medical and dental procedures at ambulatory, outpatient, and medical offices
📍Limited attendance outdoor religious gatherings
📍Recreational boating, fishing, golf, tennis, hiking, and hunting
📍Reopening of car washes
📍Limited outdoor gym and fitness classes
📍Outdoor work with appropriate distancing measures
📍Some personal services
For the full update:
We are still OPEN if you need assistance on the water.
We thank all the health care and frontline workers for everything they are doing and we encourage people to practice safe social distancing for the benefit of the collective community.
Under Governor Hogan's new Stay At Home Order, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources has issued a mandate regarding boating in Maryland. Here are the nuts and bolts of the mandate and also a link to the site with full details.
“Under the executive order, no Marylander should leave their home except for an essential reason. Therefore, recreational boating is not allowed. Limited hunting and limited recreational fishing and crabbing can continue to provide sustenance, however social distancing must be adhered to strictly. No permits for fishing tournaments, including virtual tournaments, will be issued by the department until further notice. Commercial fishing is deemed essential and may continue since it is part of the food supply chain."
We’re very excited to share with you that we have added a 3rd TowBoat to our fleet. Here’s our behind the scenes story of how we transformed a hull into a fast response marine towing and salvage vessel. We couldn’t have done it without the help of Bluewater Marine Specialist and a few great welders. Our whole family was involved in this process, we look forward to seeing you on the water!
A message to the boating community and our valued customers,
As we begin to navigate the newly uncharted waters presented by the Coronavirus, please rest assured that all of us at Tow Jamm Marine and TowBoatUS are remaining open and instep with the evolving situation. It is our goal to help flatten the curve while still being of assistance to boaters here on the Chesapeake Bay. The safety and security of our customers and captains is our highest priority. We are ready 24/7 with all of the appropriate sanitizing gear and will maintain a safe distance from all persons aboard your vessel.
