In addition to the financial support Sea Tow and the Sea Tow Foundation have made to MRAA, the organization is also offering MRAA Retail Members a series of exclusive benefits. They are guaranteeing wholesale rates on full-year Sea Tow memberships for MRAA Members to be able to include with the sale of a boat making on-water assistance standard for all boat buyers.
