The Sea Tow Foundation Announces that the ACA Has Opened a New Life Jacket Loaner Stand At Motts Reservoir 

Fredericksburg, Virginia – April, 2014 – The Sea Tow Foundation is proud to announce that the ACA has opened a new Life Jacket Loaner stand at Motts Run Reservoir Recreation Area. This new location joins the more than 200 Life Jacket Loaner Stands already established around the country by the Sea Tow Foundation. Located in popular boating areas, these stands let boaters who need an extra life jacket or a properly fitting PFD borrow one or more free of charge to take onboard with them, helping to keep themselves and their passengers safer on the water. The Sea Tow Foundation’s Life Jacket Loaner Program is funded through donations, as well as by a grant from the Sport Fish Resortation & Boating Trust Fund, which is administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.

As part of the current grant, the Sea Tow Foundation accepted applications from non-profit organizations and boating agencies around the country to host a life jacket loaner program in their local areas. The ACA|Canoe - Kayak - SUP - Raft - Rescue was accepted as one of the hosts. “We are happy that Motts Run Reservoir Recreation Area has joined the growing list of Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Stands, which have loaned out nearly 22,000 life jackets to recreational boaters at no cost since 2008,” said Sea Tow Foundation Executive Director Gail R. Kulp. “Each of our life jacket loaner stands is stocked with life jackets ranging in size from infant to adult so everyone can be safe on the water.”
