First, the Sea Tow Foundation accepts applications for 50 new life jacket loaner stations and plans to restock hundreds of existing stations for the 2021 boating season. Through a grant administered by the U.S. Coast Guard’s Sport Fish Restoration & Boating Trust Fund, the Sea Tow Foundation plans to work with communities to promote boating safety.

Up next, we clear up an age-old debate Fender -versus- Bumper. A “fender” hangs off your boat temporarily to keep you away from a dock, another boat, or an obstruction of some sort (fends you off). A “bumper” is attached to a car or truck. Then, assuming you have fenders correctly sized to your boat, Boating Magazine examines the techniques for maximum effectiveness and considerations for the best method of securing fenders to a cleat, stanchion, or railing.

Finally, one of the highest waves ever recorded in Irish waters clocks in at 98.4 feet! Learn more about the origin of this phenomenon from PassageMaker Magazine
