ALEXANDRIA, Va., January 7, 2010 - Boaters can forget the snow and start making plans for their summer boating vacation with a little help from the BoatU.S. Services Locator. The online tool at www.BoatUS.com/ServiceLocator uses Google Maps to show locations of marinas that offer money-saving discounts on fuel and transient slips. A new trip-planning enhancement is the addition of NOAA nautical charts that overlay onto the Locator's Google Map, allowing boaters to see bottom depths, hazards and navigational aids all on one screen. This new feature is provided by Geowake, a nautical mapping solutions provider.

The BoatU.S. Services Locator also shows locations of TowBoatU.S. and Vessel Assist on-the-water towing ports with contact information, West Marine retail store locations, and places where boaters can borrow a child's life jacket at no cost through the BoatU.S. Foundation Kid's Life Jacket Loaner program.
