What's New in Membership?
Boat Ramps are now in the Service Locator!
We recently added thousands of boat ramps from around the country to the Services Locator, making it easier than ever for Members to find a place to launch their boat! Each ramp listing includes basic information and two aerial photos to give Members an idea of what the ramp looks like. Users are also able to review the ramp, add photos and other tips and important information like ramp hours, number of lanes and the availability of parking.
To view the boat ramps near you, visit www.BoatUS.com/ServiceLocator and feel free to add any information and comments about ramps that you may have visited in the past!
With the DeLorme inReach, contacting BoatUS for a tow is easy even when cell phones and VHF radios don't work. The inReach is a two-way satellite communicator that offers two-way text messaging, message delivery confirmation, and pole-to-pole global coverage with no degradation of service anywhere on Earth. It can be paired with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, or DeLorme Earthmate PN-60w GPS. BoatUS Members are able to link the inReach unit with their BoatUS Membership saving valuable time when requesting on-water assistance from BoatUS. After pressing the Message button on the inReach unit, your Membership and GPS location will be transmitted automatically to the BoatUS 24-hour Towing Dispatch Center allowing BoatUS to dispatch the nearest TowBoatUS or Vessel Assist towboat to your location. In case of a rescue situation, inReach also offers 2-way SOS messaging with emergency responders. Visit BoatUS.com/DeLorme to learn more.
