This summer, the Sea Tow Foundation is turning to mariners to help promote its mission, “to promote safe boating practices that directly reduce accidents, deaths, and property damage,” by asking them to record a selfie while answering a boating-related question-of-the-month and posting it to Facebook or Instagram with a tag to @SeaTowFoundation and the hashtag #summerofboatingsafely.” Answers can be recorded either on the boat or at home in the yard.

Each contest segment revolves around one of the big summer holidays:

  • The question for Memorial Day (now through June 30; winner chosen July 15): What is something you do to boat safely that you wish everyone would do on the water?
  • The question for Independence Day (July 1 through July 31; winner chosen Aug. 15): What do you tell guests on your boat so that everyone on board is boating safely?
  • The question for Labor Day (Aug. 1 through Sept. 7; winner chosen Sept. 15): What three items are on your checklist for boating safely?
