On Water Service

Recommended Posts

    May be a question that has been answered before but I was wondering if there is an On Water Service for boats experiencing mechanical problems while on the lake.   I know I have pulled others back to the marina myself but there are times when another boat may not be able to respond.   Is there is a service available?   If so,  I would like to have the number stored in my phone.    Would a 911 call get assistance while on the lake?   Of course the next problem is ATT phone reception around Roark.

I fished with a guy that had boatus a couple of years ago and we had engine trouble. They wouldn’t come help us and wanted something like $150 to come help us despite him having paid for the insurance.

 

Moral of the story: read the fine print. I know he canceled after that incident.

That's the first I've heard of that kinda crap.  Usually as long as you join and pay your 70-80 bucks they come right away.  Otherwise yeah it costs quite a bit more.

Once night fishing at Stockton big motor died and exhausted the troller about 6 miles from the boat ramp...one paddle, me and my buddy took 6 hours to make it back against a very light wind, not a soul on the lake...I’d gladly paid to get towed... my arms and back killed me for a month after that

As many guys as we have here on OA there's no reason any of us should be left stranded for very long.  Just put a HELP! post on here with your phone number, and somebody that can help is either gonna come running...or know someone that will and can contact them.  

I check in here 3-4 times a day, and I know plenty of others do too.   We won't leave you out there with the gators and skeeters for very long.

That's a darn good idea.
