From Slow Boat To Tow Boat, Capt. Robert Manley Brings Options To Marine Community
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A boat captain with 25 years experience running marine businesses has added another tow boat to the options available to the marine community here.
Capt. Robert Manley, a maritime jack-of-all-trades, got his sea legs as a youngster fishing off the New Jersey coast.
After several years of running a demolition and construction business in his home state, he left the cold and snow behind and headed to the islands, where he built marinas, ran fishing charters and boated for pleasure.
The New Jersey native is well-known locally from running Above & Below Marine Services, a company that offers a range of boat-repair and assistance services. His goal now, he said, is to let people know about TowBoatUS membership and benefits.
“It’s well-known in the States, but new down here,” he said.
