Hey this is Capt. Mike Kern the new owner of Sea Tow. I need some help spreading the word to boaters on Lake Austin that when they see a boat being towed and there are flashing red and amber lights, to slow down for me. It's mainly when I am trying to bring the boat alongside and put them on dock or their trailer. When they are being towed from the stern it's not a big deal. Any assistance would be great. Thanks in advance.

I am sure you have some stories about people being inconsiderate ripping by at 50 mph.

The ones ripping by are a problem, but it's the ones who slow up just enough to throw an offshore size wave. I understand that people want to ski and surf, and I try to work around them, but some are just reckless.
