This is one of those threads where there's no single conclusion.
Sure if you guess based on limited experience.. I have been to hundreds of marinas through the years between Mobile., Al and Boston, Ma.
I also work in the assistance tow business.
I also am friends with more than a few marina managers uo and down the coast.
No, the situation described was an anomoly in my experience.
Those that want to "guess" what policies are....great. Which is fine, but as some stated, it seems different than the norm.
Plus I have already commented on the non event of towing in a broken boat. If the marina has a service department...wow are tbey happy.
