Weego signs deal with Sea Tow

The Weego 66 jump starter is being offered to all Sea Tow franchise operators.

Weego also is now a Sea Tow Savings Club national participant for all Sea Tow members to take advantage of discount pricing.

“Sea Tow captains are constantly being called on to jump-start an engine. It’s one of the top three services offered by Sea Tow captains,” said Gerry Toscani, CEO of Weego, in a statement. “Having a rugged, yet portable lightweight solution that is incredibly safe, crazy-simple to use and more than durable enough to withstand the repeated use demanded by Sea Tow makes their jobs a whole lot easier.”

“We used our Weego 66 on Fourth of July weekend, and it was a big hit. Over the past month or so we did close to 40 jumps with it,” said Capt. Chris Smith of Sea Tow Miami. “It was so easy to use, the perfect size and built with the right features. My captains didn’t treat it gently, and it still worked exactly as required. It also has a big ‘wow factor’ for the members we helped on the water. From jump starting to charging their phones, the intensity of the flashlight to the water-resistant storage pouch, they loved the features of Weego 66.”

“We have tried many portable jump-starting products, but Weego 66 has proven to be the most utilitarian portable power solution we have tried to date,” Capt. Nik Foster of Sea Tow Daytona/Ponce/New Smyrna said.

“The robust design, the commercial-grade clamps and even the vibrant orange color make it feel like it belongs on a working boat. Since we started using Weego 66 it has replaced our bulky jump packs and jumper cables for all but the large 30-foot-and-up vessels. I plan to have every captain on my team carry Weego 66 in their captain’s bag.”

Sea Tow members are now able to purchase Weego portable power products through their Sea Tow Savings Club portal.

“We are constantly looking for ways to add value for Sea Tow members, and with the very positive referrals by several of our franchise owners we know that we have not only found an essential boater’s tool, but an enthusiastic company in Weego, as well,” said Cindy McCaffery, vice president of program development for Sea Tow.
