Come Join us at the Norwalk and Tampa Boat Shows!

Come Join us at the Norwalk and Tampa Boat Shows!

If you’re anything like us, you live and breathe boating. Whether it’s spending a beautiful late-summer day out on the water cruising your favorite waterways, perusing your favorite boating message boards or reading up on the newest boats in Boating Magazine, you just can’t get enough.

.

If that describes you, we know how much you love checking out your local boat show. For residents of the New England states or Florida’s Suncoast , there’s no better place to be than the Norwalk and Tampa and Boat Shows, hosted each year by our friends at the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA).

.

If you’ve ever been to one of NMMA’s shows, you know you’re in for a treat. Whether your passion is fishing, watersports, paddlesports or just good, old-fashioned family fun, these shows have a little something for everyone. You’ll be able to find fishing simulators, boating seminars, live music and, of course, the latest and greatest in the world of boating.

.

You’ll also be able to find Life Jackets from the Sea Tow Foundation! At both Norwalk and Tampa, we’ll have some of our popular Life Jacket Loaner Stations set up so that show attendees can stop by and borrow a life jacket as they peruse the docks and check out all the wonderful exhibits these shows have to offer. Our friends at Onyx Outdoors have partnered with us to provide these life jackets at the boat shows.

.

Not only do the life jackets help keep attendees safe, but these stations also provide a great opportunity to teach your children about the importance of life jacket use whenever they are in or around the water.

.

The Sea Tow Foundation works with volunteers to help properly fit the life jackets on the boat show attendees. Volunteers can sign up for 2-3 hour shifts and, in return, they receive a free pass to the show on the day of their shift to explore all the show has to offer. If you’d like to volunteer to help at the Norwalk Boat Show, please click here. And if you’d be available to help out at the Tampa Boat Show, please click here.

.

So, if you’re planning on checking out Norwalk Boat Show from September 19-22 or the Tampa Boat show, which has been postponed to October 25-27 due to the Hurricane, stop by the Sea Tow Foundation’s life jacket loaner tents along the waterfront at either show, say hi, and grab a life jacket to borrow for your day at the show!
