Charlotte Harbor SeaTow

Just wanted to give a shout out to Marcus from our local SeaTow group out of Charlotte Harbor.  Given that I'm on boat #4, a week or so ago was the first time I've ever had to call them for help.  My motor died while I was about 6 miles from my home marina, above the US41 bridge and about halfway to Snook Haven.  Anyhow, the voltage regulator went out, and my battery drained too low to start the motor.  I swapped one of my trolling motor batteries, but still was not able to get the motor running.  After calling the SeaTow number to dispatch, Marcus called me back shortly thereafter and said he was headed to my location.  Very professional and courteous.  Final bill - zero, as I've been a long term member. But, it would have been $1050 primarily due to the distance he had to come while coming through the slow speed zone on the Myakka above the Sarasota/Charlotte county line.
