PERCY PRIEST LAKE, Tenn. — Shane O’Neal, owner of five TowBoatUS operations on the Tennesse River chain of lakes, is opening his sixth location at Percy Priest Lake.
The new site opens one month after his fifth TowBoatUS operation on Watts Bar Lake. His other locations are in Scottsboro and Rogersville, Ala., and on Tennessee’s Nickajack and Chicamauga lakes.
O’Neal and all of his boat captains are USCG-licensed and all six locations have response vessels fully rigged for marine towing and salvage work and ready to go at a moment’s notice, including extra fuel, engine fluids, pumps, dive gear and battery “jump packs” to handle dead batteries.
TowBoatUS is a membership on-water assistance service. It’s run through the Boat Owners Association of The United States.
