If the vessel in question has a VHF then your best shouting them on CH16 and asking them to accept responsibility for the tow, that way if you do sink em they should be a recording of it on CH16.

The above is what we're told to do with the RNLI, if the vessel to be towed doesn't have a VHF we lend em the handheld.
