Marine Island Trail Association Members save $10 on a Sea Tow Membership
Having a Sea Tow membership is the best assurance you can have when boating with friends, family or especially solo. Knowing a professional U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain is standing by 24/7 should you ever need a fuel delivery, battery jump or a timely tow is priceless.
Plus, as a Marine Island Trail Association Member, you save $10 on your Sea Tow Gold Card Membership.
We all know that having a functioning VHF radio on board is a necessity. Checking your radio to ensure it is working should be done every time you go out boating. In the past you used to need to make a radio check request and wait for a response, but no longer!
Now you can do it yourself with Sea Tow’s Automated Radio Check Service. Provided as a FREE public service to select boating communities, Sea Tow’s Automated Radio Check Service reduces the volume of non-urgent communications traffic on VHF channel 16, the international hailing and distress channel, while still allowing you to perform the check to ensure that your radio is functioning properly.
It’s simple to use:
Automated Radio Check Service uses one of VHF Channels 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 84. Simply tune your radio to the proper channel for your community.
Conduct a radio check as you normally would.
Upon releasing the mic, the system will replay your transmission, letting you hear how you sound.

I was out on my 27 ft Sea Ray with my wife and two kids at which time my boat engine suddenly cut off. I originally thought I ran out of gas so I immediately anchored and called Sea Tow. Captain Walt from Sea Tow Central Hudson showed up about 35 minutes later. Captain Walt is a true professional.Luigi Olinto, Baldwin, NYMember Since 2009
