Sea Tow Services International announced the opening of three franchises: Sea Tow Old Hickory Lake and Sea Tow Lake Percy Priest in Tennessee, and Sea Tow Lake Keowee in South Carolina.

The company also announced the sale and transfer of ownership of two existing locations.

Tow Tampa Bay in Florida is now under the ownership of Capt. Skip Shute Jr., who brings with him more than 15 years of on-water expertise, having formerly worked at Sea Tow Northern New Jersey, which was established by his father 21 years ago.

Tow Lake Wylie in North Carolina is now under the ownership of Capt. Howie Kaplan, who also owns nearby Sea Tow Lake Norman.

The new franchise owners were recently awarded certificates for their successful completion of the extensive Sea Tow training program, which includes on-water and classroom instruction at the company's corporate headquarters in Southold, N.Y.

Tow Tampa Bay, Sea Tow Old Hickory Lake and Sea Tow Lake Wylie are open and operational. Sea Tow Lake Keowee opens June 14 and Sea Tow Lake Percy Priest is scheduled to open mid-summer.

Sea Tow is a marine assistance provider with more than 160,000 members in 114 locations throughout the United States, Australia, Bahamas, Europe and Puerto Rico.
