Future Tides receives first grant to report about technology and safe boating

The Northwest Marine Trade Association’s (NMTA) Grow Boating grant program awarded Future Tides a $1,000 grant to underwrite a special series about how technology and innovation can improve boater education and safety.

The upcoming series of articles will introduce readers to maritime innovation focused on safety and how technology can improve access and adoption of safe boating practices. In the region where the Life Sling was developed, how are modern technologies and local innovators trying to make boaters safer on waterways near and far?

This series is very much a work-in-progress (as all Future Tides things are!) so please send me any ideas, questions or comments as I continue my deep-dive into marine safety.
