Tow Boat Captain Rescues Stranded Boaters And Then Drives In Circles Until His Boat Runs Out Of Gas Because He’s Wasted

What do you do with a drunken sailor? Trust me, I’ve been on both sides of that question and I still can’t give you a definitive answer.

Meet Captain Timothy Pooler of Boynton Beach, Florida who, according to, was dispatched last Thursday evening to help a couple of guys whose boat had broken down 25 miles off the coast of Florida.

After four hours, he finally makes it to the stranded boaters, hooks the boats together and drives in circles for several hours until he asked one of the men to drive the boat. The tow boat eventually ran out of fuel after which the men gave him fuel from their boat.

At that point, the men were able to get their boat started so they hooked the tow boat to their boat and pulled it as long as they could but eventually had to cut loose and shortly after their boat broke down again.

Finally, a second tow boat makes it to the stranded men and tows their boat in and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission picked up Pooler and his boat.

Pooler told the FWC officers that he had been drinking and taking prescription medications on Thursday night and shouldn’t have reported for duty.
