good luck using the local S.O. when your in a bind, been there done that got the t-shirt, they usually try to pass it off to the LADWF, that is unless you happen to be someone that they find to be important. LADWF will help, but I'm told that the agents no longer stay at the camp on the island anymore, so the wait might exceed the blood loss from the mosquitoes. Your best bet is to form a mutual aid agreement with someone, and file a float plan before leaving. I've checked into the Sea-tow option, and the membership fee is not all inclusive when it comes to tows, especially in areas where there is no local coverage. You might be better off bringing your laptop and posting a help request here, the good ole boy network around here would probably work alot quicker than our tax paid responders!
