“Fast Response to the rescue!!! Last night I grounded my 31 ft boat in Biscayne Bay. Inboard engines, nightfall and a dropping tide complicated the matter… Thank goodness, Chuck and Chris passed by, offered to pull us out for a reasonable flat rate, acted quickly, and got us out.
“I will never use any other service than Fast Response. These are good guys, with powerful boats and years of experience. I would DEFINITELY recommend you use Fast Response when you get in trouble on the water.”

“This is a letter of recommendation for Fast Response Towing.
“Last year they provided race course towing during the 30th Annual Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix Festival and did an outstanding job. Suncoast Charities for Children signed a contract with them for this race event. Both the charity and registered race teams appreciated their professionalism and efficiency.
“We plan to use their services again this year knowing they will once again provide great service and do a great job.”

“I would sincerely like to thank you and everyone involved from Fast Response for saving me and my sister’s lives. The currents were too strong to hold onto the rescue diver, and my sister was feeling incredibly weak and could not hold on for much longer. It was such a relief seeing your boat come to us.”
