Once you see how fast the tide flies by in the channels, it makes one realize that engine power loss is a big deal. We like to have two anchors, thereby if the engine will not fire up, the anchors are tossed in immediately to not drift out to sea. Boat Tow Services are pretty cheap when you think about the peace of mind benefit. Towboat US covers 100 percent of the Florida Keys and has boats stationed all over the place.
I feel so much better with my boat towing policy all paid each year. One once did we need a tow, but the seas were getting rough and they really saved us. You want to have a good plan for boating out here in the open water.
