Tow service reminder: Designate a sober skipper

Recognizing the Fourth of July weekend as the busiest and most celebrated weekend of the summer boating season, Sea Tow is reminding people to boat responsibly. In addition to reviewing pre-departure checklists, filing float plans, fueling up and reviewing safety procedures with guests, people who consume alcohol while boating are encouraged to do so in moderation and to always designate a sober skipper.

To get the message into the hands of boaters, Sea Tow captains across the country will be handing out 30,000 koozies — foam can insulators — to boaters during the holiday weekend. The koozies are emblazoned with the message: “Booze and Boats don’t mix. Designate a Sober Skipper.”

Sea Tow captains will distribute koozies between today and Monday as their schedules allow. Boaters who need assistance will receive priority service.
