ALEXANDRIA, Va., November 17, 2010 – For the man in the family hopelessly obsessed with boating or sailing, mothers and wives can now purchase a gift membership in the nation’s largest boat owners group for their favorite guy.
Being a BoatUS member means all year long sons and husbands will have help just a phone call away. The $24 annual membership fee includes $50 of on-the-water boat towing assistance — available 24/7 — with North America’s largest fleet of towboats, and $50 on-the-road assistance for a disabled boat trailer and tow vehicle. This gives the whole family peace of mind.
Your boating guy also gets exclusive fuel, transient slip and repair discounts at over 900 BoatUS Cooperating Marinas; savings on boating gear, a subscription to the nation’s largest boating publication, BoatUS Magazine, fun online learning opportunities such as navigation video games, and access to lots of “how-to” information. He also joins half a million other BoatUS members that will ensure that the voice of recreational boaters is heard on Capitol Hill.
“Unlike a pair of socks or just another tie, BoatUS membership means your boating guy will be taken care of long after the holidays are over,” said BoatUS spokesman Scott Croft. “And they will love you for it.”
Anglers Can Get in On the Action Too
BoatUS Angler, the organization’s program for boat-owning fishermen, is also available as a gift membership for the same price, $24, and includes a subscription to BoatUS Angler magazine.
In addition, as a way to give your guy something extra, gift givers will get either a free BoatUS khaki hat or famous “no-stink” angler hand towel to use as a stocking stuffer.
