Sea Tow revamps its website


Sea Tow Services International launched its newly enhanced website, which provides users with a greater level of interaction and connectivity with Sea Tow.

Also, for the first time, Sea Tow members will be able to manage their accounts online.

“Members who move, purchase a new boat or change their status in some other way will now be able to log in to their personal ‘My Sea Tow’ portal on the website and update their profile,” chief administrative officer Kristen Frohnhoefer said in a statement. “In addition, the new site gives them easy access to news and information about their local Sea Tow operation and special Sea Tow member discounts and offers in their region.”

Another feature lets users view the location of every Sea Tow operation in the United States and the individual Sea Tow boats stationed within each region — along with their GPS coordinates — on an interactive map. The Sea Tow Automated Radio Check tower positions also are displayed on the map.

The site also provides a wealth of boating safety tips, information about Sea Tow membership levels and exclusive member discounts and special offers from thousands of manufacturers, retailers and service providers.

Sea Tow’s new website also reflects “a complete rebranding,” according to its designer, Colleen Syron, principal and creative director of Syron Design.

“We know that Sea Tow members feel a real connection to their local U.S. Coast Guard-licensed Sea Tow captains,” Syron said in a statement. “So we have featured the captains throughout the site and made their knowledge and expertise more accessible to users.”
