Need an idea for a Quartermaster project that serves the community? Why not apply for the Sea Tow Foundation’s “Life Jacket Loaner Station” grant!

Thanks to grant funding from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, administered by the U.S. Coast Guard, the Sea Tow Foundation has distributed over 28,000 life jackets nationwide to help make recreational boaters safer on the water. To find a Sea Tow Foundation life jacket loaner stand near you, click here.

If you are selected, you will receive the following:

  • Total of 54 life jackets: 6 infant, 12 child, 12 youth, 12 adult universal, 12 adult XL
  • 1 life jacket loaner station (Minor assembly will be required after shipping, directions will be included)
  • 1 weather-proof brochure holder that will attach to the life jacket loaner stand
  • 500 life jacket safety informational buckslips
  • Signage files to print locally with the addition of your organization’s logo
  • Press kit to promote the life jacket loaner station
  • Life jacket loaner program manual

And, you agree to monitor usage and report back to Sea Tow Foundation on how people are using the Life Jacket Loaner Station.

So, check it out, it would make a great project for any Sea Scout or Ship. If you check this list, you’ll see there are none of these stations in the entire Central Region! Who wants to install #1!
