Sea Tow debuts new mobile app

Sea Tow Services International launched its Sea Tow app, which is available for free download by iPhone and Android smart-phone users, regardless of whether they are Sea Tow members.

Sea Tow app users have access to up-to-date marine weather forecasts, alerts and radar; tide tables and graphs; GPS location, speed and heading; and a link to 24-hour on-water assistance. The app features an easy-to use graphic interface with day and night running modes.

“The Sea Tow app is designed to be a quick and comprehensive reference tool for boaters, not only when they’re on the water, but also when they’re planning their next trip,” Capt. Ryan Pratt of Sea Tow Treasure Coast in Jensen Beach, Fla., said in a statement.

Pratt combined his computer and design skills with his professional captain’s experience to be the architect and co-project manager of the Sea Tow app. Jester Communications is the developer.

Well-known meteorology firm Weather Underground supports the app’s weather and tides functions.

“Our main goal to keep boaters proactive and help them to prevent mishaps on the water, but the app has both non-emergency and emergency response functions, as well,” Pratt said. “The Sea Tow app turns an iPhone or Droid into a boater’s best friend.”
