    Default Question About Vessel Assist?????

    If you help pull up a boat and the guy can't afford to pay the bill , What do you guy's do with the boat?
    Is there an auction or something?

    When we get a boat down river ( Blythe ) we pickle the motor for the customer, and if they don't pay the bill we lein sale the boat. Generally the boat damaged with no trailer is not worth the recovery fee. We have tow trucks and have to pick up vehicles off the freeway, every day and the salvage rarely covers the cost of the driver, fuel, operaters wages, insurance, advertising etc.

    You should hire a sub-contracter (terminology?) to strip those boats/cars and part them out. I was surprised you don't get the trailer but after thinkjing about it for a few it makes sense.

    I want to Know if they inspect your boat ahead of time ,and if its breaks down too much ! do they cancel you or nail you with a sur-charge ? 53 bones seems like a Bargy! beats trying to "mooch some Roll bar boat" for a tow ?

    and do they maybe toss you a "pity" beer when your being towed ??

    But does the annual payment cover every single charge that may come up when snatching my boat off the bottom of a 12 mph current?? what about the hazmat fees?? I have not been following this topic since the other night, so if this has already been gone through?...then ooops!
    Thanks

    Vessel Assist, how about posting you rates and what your $53.00 a year covers.A friend of mine had a Boat sank near AHA last year.He used a service and was charged $8000.00 for this service.This included a environmental fee also.Does this seem reasonable? I provide a mobile truck repair service and I dont kick a guy in his balls when he's in need for an emergency service.Please forgive, but I would like to know what rates are so that all of us can decide on what to do if we have a situation.Most of us Boat from Blythe on up.Thanks Mark.
