Dockmate U.S., which offers handheld wireless remote controls for boats, has joined the National Safe Boating Council’s Admiral Club — the highest tier of membership.

“There is no greater cause in our industry than to support safer and more enjoyable boating,” said Dockmate U.S. spokesman Brian Sheehan in a statement. “Dockmate is designed to make low-speed maneuvering and docking safer and stress-free. The goals of the NSBC align perfectly with our own.”

“We welcome Dockmate to our growing list of supporters,” said NSBC executive director Peg Phillips. “The vital work of our team cannot be undertaken without like-minded patrons, whether companies or individuals, from the marine industry.”
