Sea Tow Services International created an online channel for boaters called "Sea Tow Captain’s Corner," hosted by the website BoatingLocal.com.

BoatingLocal supplies Northeastern boating enthusiasts with breaking news, product reviews and up-to-date fishing information targeted to their interests. The new Sea Tow Captain’s Corner enhances the site by adding a channel of essential boating safety and seamanship tips and advice from Sea Tow’s professional captains.

Recent Sea Tow Captain’s Corner topics include tips on fire safety, filing a float plan and designating a Sober Skipper for summer weekend celebrations on the water. News from Sea Tow operators throughout the Northeast and stories on local boating events are also posted regularly to the channel.

“We're very excited that Sea Tow has signed on as one of BoatingLocal’s first channel sponsors. The Sea Tow Captain’s Corner is a perfect venue for the company to broadcast its important boating safety messages and tips while also showcasing the expertise of its team of New England towing professionals and the services they offer,” BoatingLocal director Tom Richardson said in a statement.
