Mountain Island Lake Gets 24-Hour TowBoatUS Coverage


On the Water Assistance When You Need It

CHARLOTTE, NC, July 15, 2014 – For years, boaters and anglers stuck with a dead battery, dead engine or empty fuel tank out on Mountain Island Lake had to hope that someone would get them back to the boat launch or dock. That’s because the lake had no around-the-clock on water boat towing service. Local law enforcement only patrolled the lake on weekends and provided tows, which was also likely not the best use of the officer’s time or taxpayer dollars. That has all changed with the opening of TowBoatUS Mountain Island Lake, a 24-hour on water towing and assistance service for routine breakdowns. The new location is the third for Capt. Derek DeBord and his wife, Cheryl, who are owners of nearby TowBoatUS Lake Wylie and TowBoatUS Lake Norman.

Pascrell Statement on Passing of Congressman Robert A. Roe

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) released the following statement on the passing of former Congressman Robert A. Roe, who represented New Jersey in the United States House of Representatives for over twenty-three years, serving from November 4, 1969 to January 3, 1993:

“It is with deep sadness that I learned of the passing of my good friend, Congressman Bob Roe. A true champion of transportation throughout the country, people unknowingly witness Bob’s legacy through the many roads, highways and bridges they travel each and every day. In fact, the federal building which houses my district office is named after him, a fitting tribute to Bob’s work on behalf of the people of New Jersey. As Chairman of the Committee on Public Works and Transportation, Bob succeeded in passing a bipartisan transportation reauthorization that both Democrats and Republicans could be proud of.  As we struggle with a long term solution to funding the Highway Trust Fund, I only wish we had some of Bob’s bipartisan leadership today.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Bob’s family during this difficult time.”
