Sea Tow franchises in the Sunshine State reported a 38 percent increase in on-water assistance calls between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, and nearly all locations reported a general increase in boating traffic.

Sea Tow’s national 24-hour call center saw a 53 percent rise in calls for assistance over 2007.
