In less than 9 months since its release, a free Sea Tow Mobile App that provides boaters with weather, tides and navigation info has passed the 100,000 downloads mark.

Released in April 2012, the free iPhone and Android smartphone application has proven highly popular with users across the United States. Boaters rave about the app’s utility as a convenient, multifunction navigation and boating safety tool. The Sea Tow app is not exclusive to Sea Tow members; anyone with a smartphone can download it free of charge.

The Sea Tow app won a Mobile of the Day (MOTD) Award from Favourite Website Awards (FWA) when it was introduced in 2012. It is nearly 100-percent 5-star rated at the Apple iTunes store.

In addition to providing smartphone users with fingertip access to up-to-date marine weather forecasts, alerts and radar; tide tables and graphs; GPS location, speed and heading, the Sea Tow app also gives them an instant link to summon on-water assistance. Simply swiping the slide bar at the bottom of every screen connects them to Sea Tow’s 24-Hour National Dispatch Center, while the app’s GPS function automatically provides the assistance specialist with their exact geographical coordinates, helping responders to find them more quickly. A useful source of information even in the best weather conditions, the Sea Tow app can prove to be a critical boating safety tool on the water.
