Sea Tow in Maine gets new owners

ADVERTISEMENT

Capt. Bruce White and Capt. Matt Wilder took over Sea Tow Portland/Midcoast in Maine this spring. It provides on-water assistance to boaters in the Atlantic Ocean and inshore waters of Maine in the 45-mile stretch between Goat Island off Cape Porpoise in the south to Pemquid Point to the north. This Sea Tow franchise will operate five yellow Sea Tow boats.

Capt. White earned his U.S. Coast Guard license at age 19, and currently holds 100-ton inland towing and 50-ton near-coastal licenses.  

Capt. Wilder holds a 100-ton near-coastal towing license. He grew up in Boothbay Harbor.

The pair also operate a water-taxi service in Portland with a 29-foot Terry Jason with a six-passenger capacity to transport people to and from the inhabited islands of Casco Bay, which has a year-round population that grows substantially in the summer months.
