What do turtles and boats have in common?

They both wear tags!

This week (May 18th – 24th)  is National Safe Boating Week and Tomorrow, May 23rd is World Turtle Day. We are celebrating both holidays today with our HIN Tags and Sea Turtle Tags.

National Safe Boating Week is a program of the National Safe Boating Council to promote boating and life jacket safety. This campaign kicks off the weekend before Memorial Day when a lot of people will take to the water. Before you dust off those water skis this Memorial Day, also take the time to make sure your HIN (Hull Identification Number) Tag is up to date on your boat! HIN Tags are required by the Coast Guard, and our stainless steel HIN Tags will keep you up to date.

Sticking with our water theme, up next is World Turtle Day! Sponsored by the American Tortoise Rescue, this day is used to  as an annual observance to help people protect and celebrate turtles and tortoises and their disappearing habitats around the world. Sea turtle conservationist use NB&T turtle tags to track and research sea turtles. Our tags are made from a durable incoloy material that stands up to salt water and won’t hurt the turtle.
