Capt. Tom Kehlenbach, owner of Sea Tow Central Connecticut, was named to the board of the Connecticut Marine Trades Association for a three-year term that starts July 1.

The appointment was made March 14 during the trade group’s 58th annual meeting at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. Kehlenbach has been an association member since 1990, when he founded Sea Tow Central Connecticut.

“The CMTA has been a great organization to be a part of for so many years,” he said. “It will be a pleasure for me to give something back to the association and to our local marine community.”

Sea Tow Central Connecticut provides marine assistance to Sea Tow members and other boaters on Long Island Sound and the southern Connecticut River. It operates boats in Branford, Westbrook, Old Saybrook, Essex and Deep River.
