Four Sea Tow franchises are being recognized for reaching 20 or more years of continuous operation and ownership.
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. "We thank them for their years of dedication and loyalty not only to the Sea Tow brand, but also to helping thousands of boaters in need and enhancing boating safety in their respective areas."
These operators join 29 other Sea Tow locations that will celebrate continuous operation for 20 years or longer in 2010. These additional locations may have changed hands through the years and their territories may have been altered or combined.
