CASEVILLE, Mich. — Brothers Jeff Moore and Jimmy Moore have purchased TowBoatUS Sand Point from former owner Gary Poirier. The location serves Lake Huron.
This is the second TowBoatUS location for the Moore brothers. Their other location is in Port Austin, which was purchased in 2010.
The brothers, and Jimmy’s wife, Sara, all have strong boating background, and all three are USCG-licensed. The Moore brothers, second-generation mariners, grew up on the water and spent time helping their father in the salvage and maritime services business. Jimmy and Sara are also former Merchant Mariners and Jeff has years of experience operating side-scan sonar as well as diving and documenting Lake Huron shipwrecks.
In the off-season, Jeff is an independent systems consultant while Jimmy sells and installs docks and hoists and runs the welding and metal fabrication services for the family’s other local business, Bay Marine Salvage.
