This post was originally published in 2019. With the boating season right around the corner, we figured now would be a good time to re-publish this post.
This past Labor Day, I had the pleasure of joining captain Shawn Brule of TowBoatUS Cape Cod/Plymouth for a behind the scenes look at their incredible operation.
The plan was for me to hop on board with captain Shawn and film "a day in the life" at TowBoatUS Cape Cod/Plymouth. I met Shawn early in the morning, and in no time at all we were sitting in the middle of Buzzard's Bay waiting for a tow call to come in.
It was quite impressive to see how proactively TowBoatUS Cape Cod/Plymouth operates. Rather than sitting at the dock waiting for a call, we were floating in the middle of Buzzard's Bay ready to spring into action.
After a few radio checks, a call regarding a stalled boat in the Cape Cod Canal came in, and we were immediately under way and en route to the distressed boater.
