The familiar yellow boats reached a milestone this month.

Sea Tow Services International is celebrating its 35th anniversary. The Long Island, N.Y.-based company has more than 100 locations in the United States, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.

Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer, who died in March 2015, started Sea Tow in 1983, when the Coast Guard ceased non-emergency towing services. Today, Capt. Joseph Frohnhoefer III and Kristen Frohnhoefer continue their father’s business.

“Our father left some big shoes to fill, but Kristen and I couldn’t be more honored to continue the family tradition of helping boaters in need, Joseph, Sea Tow’s CEO, said in a statement. “My father always said, ‘A bad day on the water is a thousand times better than a good day at work, especially when you are a Sea Tow member,’ and I couldn’t agree more. It’s been such a pleasure being able to work with the amazing network of captains and other crew that are part of Sea Tow and spending each and every day doing what I love.”
