To help promote proper life jacket use, the boat show is working with the Sea Tow Foundation to provide life jackets while you’re attending the boat show, at no cost! Life jacket loaner stations will be stationed in front of the docks at this year’s show for you to use before walking the docks and boarding the hundreds of boats on display in the water. Life jackets will be available in infant, child, youth and adult sizes. Volunteer staff will help you choose the right size and provide safety information about the importance of wearing a life jacket when on or around boats. You can return the life jackets at the loaner stations or at designated boxes around the show.
