Take the Sober Skipper Pledge
Our goal at the Sea Tow Foundation is to help eliminate Boating Under the Influence (BUI) by encouraging all boaters to make the safe and smart choice to be or to designate a sober skipper before every boating trip..
BUI is against the law in every state and territory and in al sizes and types of boats whether they have a motor or not. .
The wind, vibration, noise, and the sun that you experience while boating can impair balance, coordination and concentration all on their own. Adding alcohol or drugs intensifies these effects..
Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in boating accidents every year, but if every boat were to have a Sober Skipper at the helm, this would be 100% preventable.
By Taking the Sober Skipper Pledge, you are agreeing to:
1. Not operate any boat, no matter the size, if my plans include drinking alcohol.
2. Be responsible for my boat and all of my passengers.
3. Be or designate a sober skipper for every boating trip.
With a focus on safe boating practices that result in fun on the water, the Sea Tow Foundation – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization – was established in 2007 by Sea Tow Founder Capt. Joe Frohnhoefer. After his passing in 2015, Captain Joe’s legacy continues as the Foundation brings attention to the number of preventable boating-related injuries, deaths, and damage to property, that directly addresses prevention methods through education and awareness.
