Congratulations to our December photo contest winner, Michelle! Her festive photo of holiday lights and glowing boats in the marina received the most votes from The Boat Guy fans and the official nod from Chip to become our December winner. Michelle claims the December schwag bag, full of fun stuff, and an Aqua Quip gift certificate.

Michelle is automatically entered in our grand prize drawing for a Saber BBQ!

Submit your favorite photo now for our January photo contest, sponsored by Aqua Quip! The contest theme is “The Best Boat Name!” Share a snapshot of your favorite boat name and the boat that claims it, in the Northwest or anywhere in the world.

We’ll announce our January winner at the beginning of February, as we make our final preparations for The Boat Guy Winter Rendezvous party in Poulsbo, WA. Join us for the perfect excuse to launch your boat year-round.

Good luck, everybody!

    Hey Chip,

    You missed D-Dock, we had 37 boats lit up for the holidays.. you are looking down what appears to be G dock at EBM. There was only 1 boat with lights on that dock, the big bright greenie.

    Hey Chip,

    I just arrived home to a fantastic bag of goodies at my doorstep….otherwise known as the “Schwag bag” from your good self. Many thanks for that Chip. It sure is a lovely start to the New Year! I shall disperse some of the prizes to my boating friends and those that voted for me.

    The winning picture was taken in Shilshole Marina about 3 weeks ago. Some friends and I had just taken part in the Christmas Ships Parade (the boat lit up on the back left corner of the pic). It was a particularly calm night and a great opportunity to take such a snap

    BTW….I am loving the updates on the site. It is providing some of us “Non Americans” with great learnings on boating and the PNW.

    Thanks again
