A dynamic member of our national network, Kim Haas is co-owner with her husband, of three Florida Sea Tow locations: Sea Tow Jacksonville, Sea Tow Key West, and Sea Tow Lower Keys, (which they share with Sea Tow Islamorada). Her day-to-day duties include serving as office manager and filling in as a dispatcher at whichever location she happens to be at the time. She and her husband Mike also like to give back to the communities by sponsoring fishing tournaments and hosting Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Stands where boaters may borrow PFDs for a day on the water.
“We just built two new Life Jacket Loaner Stands this year,” Kim says. One is by Sea Tow Jacksonville’s main office at Morningstar Marinas in Mayport, Fla., and the other is at Palm Cove Marina in Jacksonville Beach.
Kim, who is from Ohio, was not a boater until she moved south. “Now I love boating. We are outdoors people,” Kim says. Their two dogs, Flounder and Sundae, come along when she and Capt. Mike take out their personal 20-foot Hydra-Sports. “Flounder is a fish. He loves the water,” she adds, laughing.
