The franchises being honored are Capt. Dave DuVall, Sea Tow Maryland Central Chesapeake; Capt. Will Beck, Sea Tow Palm Beach; Capt. Neal McQuone, Sea Tow Southern Connecticut; and Capt. Tom Kehlenbach, Sea Tow Central Connecticut.

"These longtime Sea Tow franchisees have helped us to define and develop the private marine assistance industry," Sea Tow founder Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer said in a statement.
