What should you do when your boat stops working?

1. If you are in immediate danger contact the Coast Guard on channel 16 or call 911.

2. If you are out of the navigation channel (e.g. won't get run over by a barge) you should drop your anchor.

3.  Call Storch Marine Towing & Assistance.

Towing & Assistance

If your boat won't go, call Storch for a tow.  Our boat has pulled 110' long pleasure craft.  We have all the necessary equipment to safely pull your prized possession back to your marina or boat ramp.

Did you hit something submerged?  Now your prop is bent - or worse - your shaft.  Don't push it and make matters worse.  Give us a call.

You can call a buddy for help.  Once he burns up his V-drive towing your boat he may not be so friendly.  There goes about $1500.  Or, he may rip a fitting out of your hull (or his).  Again, very expensive to fix.  

We are rigged for towing and have the proper lines and equipment to get the job done right.  

Run out of gas?  Engine overheating?  We carry fuel, oil, coolant, and other fluids to get you back up and running and back to the marina.

Soft grounding?  Get stuck on the bank or a sand bar?  Our boat can assist.  We'll get you back underway.

Training

Did you just purchase a new boat?  Need help learning how to operate it?  Or, do you just want to learn how to pilot a boat.  We provide hands on training using our boats and yours.  We cover everything from safety laws, pre-underway checks, weather, currents, boat handling, piloting, line handling, and emergency situations.

Captain Storch is a certified instructor for Freedom Boat Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is also instructs the USCG OUPV, Masters, Towing, and Sailing courses through TrueCourse Captain’s School.

Salvage

Is your boat in peril of sinking?  Whether underway or at the dock we can save you from sinking.  Our gas powered pumps, air bags, and patch kits will keep you afloat.

Don't mess around in this type of situation.  If you have the option to get help but turn it down, your insurance company won't be happy.  

Oil and Fuel Spills/Leaks

Did you spill or leak fuel or oil?  Big fines are associated with such leaks and must be reported to the Coast Guard.  We can help you contain and clean it up.  Most marine insurance policies cover this type of service...unless you break the law and don't report it...

Delivery and Boat Captain Services

Andrew Storch, a retired Commander in the United States Navy with 23 years of total service and 7 years of sea duty, maintains a United States Coast Guard 100 Ton Near Coastal Masters license with a towing endorsement.    We can deliver your boat via water anywhere on the inter-coastal or inland water ways.  Or, if you are just in need of someone to captain your boat on occasion so that you can fully enjoy your on water experience, give us a call.
