Lake Murray Power Squadron Hosts
Sea Tow Life Jacket Loaner Stand at Flotilla Island

America's Boating Club of Lake Murray, also known as Lake Murray Power Squadron (LMPS), continues to host a Sea Tow Life Jacket Loaner Stand at Flotilla Island. Sea Tow Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting boater safety and education, selected LMPS as one of several nonprofit organizations and boating agencies to host its Life Jacket Loaner program. 

The new stands and life jackets were purchased with a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. Lake Murray Power Squadron first made the stand available on 29 April 2016 at Flotilla Island. Anyone needing to borrow a life jacket should come to the floating dock with the boat lift. Please email the squadron at LifeJackets@lmpsonline.org when borrowing a life jacket. Sizes are available for adults (standard and extra large), youth, children and infants.

Since 2008, the Sea Tow Foundation has distributed over 83,000 life jackets to local businesses and organizations across the country. As of 2021, there are more than 750 life jacket loaner stations operating in locations where boaters will have easy access to them, such as boat ramps, marinas, and parks. Boaters may borrow the life jackets at no cost and are asked to return them when they are finished so that they are available for others to use to help keep themselves and their passengers safer on the water.
