Assemble your own Small Boat Towing Kit that works for your Agency

The components below can be used for safer, small boat towing.  Many Public Safety Departments do not tow, however if there is a vessel that is headed towards danger, this is the solution your Department should have when you need to protect the lives of victims on a inoperable vessel. With the boat hook adapter attached, a buoyant pole is used to fend boat away from danger or pull a boat to safety. Ideal for small lightweight tows such as personal watercraft.
