Before we get into the 2010 winners, Go2marine would like to thank all who entered!

We had stacks of entries which you can view the popular ones on our Go2marine Facebook Page, in the Photos tab, along with past years winners. It was hard to choose and the pictures were selected by the staff here who, when combined, represents diverse boating backgrounds.

The 'founders' of the Hotdog Photo Category

The new addition for the 2011 Contest year will be “The Hotdog Category” which will be open to photos of pets and boating. This is the photo that tipped the scale for the new category. Yes, that is a real photo, taken after a day of tough boating with the family.

Send us in your pet boating pictures to boatersline@go2marine.com with the subject “2011 Hotdog Photo”.

The first place entries won a $100 gift certificate in each of the three categories. Additionally, we ended up choosing 4 Runner ups who won a $50 gift certificate each. Go2marine does appreciate all who entered and has chosen to send any of the other entries a $10 coupon.

1. Best Action Photo – $100 Winner.  Hannah Redmond leaps from her 1968 Trojan Bimini, Chesapeake Bay, MD; taken by Michael Redmond. My restored ’68 Trojan Bimini “MoNaH” is the perfect boat in the upper Chesapeake for both family outings and fishing alone. My daughters have spent the past decade enjoying the beauty and bounty of the bay and we couldnt imagine a more perfect boat to do it on!

3. Best Family / Cruising Photo – $100 Winner. We were dog sitting the Boxer (Shelby) for the weekend. The other 3, Barbie, Sponge Bob and Baker are ours and we named our boat, “The Three B’s” after them. They come everywhere with us and LOVE to go on the boat even more than car rides! They all have their sea legs and lifejackets, know their way around the boat and like to swim at Potters Cove.
