The sea Tow Foundation is opening six new life jacket loaner stations in the area, including the Isle of Hope Marina, Hilton Head Harbor Marina and the Fort McAllister Marina just in time for Labor Day Weekend.
Life jackets of various sizes are free for boaters to borrow to stay safe on the water.
"A lot of times a boater will forget a life jacket or invite a friend along and not have enough for the friend, so they can borrow it from our life jacket stand for free and bring it back at the end of the say so someone else can borrow it," said Gail Kulp of the Sea Tow Foundation.
The loaner life jackets are made possible from a $7,000 donation from Anheuser-Busch and Southern Eagle Distributing.
