When pharmacist Phil Witmer joined Sea Tow Smith Mountain Lake as a part-time Sea Tow Captain, Nancy and Rick took an instant liking to the young man and decided to introduce him to their daughter. Separately, they invited Amy and Capt. Phil to attend a “Business After Hours” reception at the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce.
The instant they met, the couple connected. “They haven’t been apart since,” says Capt. Nancy. “Phil told us, ‘If I’d known you had a daughter, I would have come to work for you as a Captain sooner!’”
Almost a year to the day after Sea Tow brought them together, Amy and Capt. Phil Witmer were married. The ceremony was held in a local church, and afterward they started their new voyage together as man and wife cruising off onto Smith Mountain Lake aboard the Sea Tow boat.
