This discussion is being created to make everyone aware of the various advertising and sponsorships that are currently available or will be available in the near future.

Since the launch of the first website back in early 2009, has had over 40,000 unique users (different people/computers). The site continues to grow at a rate faster than 10% per week and we expect the site to continue growing at an even faster rate through this upcoming boating season. has established itself as the premiere source of boating information and networking for all of Florida. This unique community of loyal, dedicated users is not only passionate about their boats but also the boating lifestyle in general -from water sports and water sports equipment to boat performance and maintenance. We are committed to being on the cutting edge of the boating scene and continue to offer what no other site or publication can offer. With its attractive layout, easy navigation, and exclusive articles and attractions, is an unbeatable source for corporate and product exposure.

Partnership / Advertising / Sponsorship Opportunities are as follows:

  • Online Advertising- Choose from several prime banner advertising locations to promote your business. The most popular banner ad is the 180x150 size, which appears on all pages throughout the site on the right side of the screen. Another favorite is the 728x90 banner at the bottom of all pages. Very similar to the three 180x150 locations, there are two additional locations at the bottom of the right column. Lastly, there are two 468x60 positions toward the bottom of the homepage. In any of these positions ads appear a minimum of one out of every three page views, which means it will rotate with a very limited number of advertisers. Don’t have a banner ready? No problem – we’ll create one for you, with your approval, free-of-charge. Browse the site; we’ve created nearly all of the current banners. Our advertising and sponsorship partners also receive access to banner results, providing real-time statistics on your marketing investment.
  • Business Marketplace Directory- The business market place directory is now live! All businesses are provided a free business listing providing space to list the business name, address, and phone number. A featured listing is a paid option and will upgrade the listing to a more prominent featured location, allow for a detailed description, and enable a website address and email address.
  • Event Sponsorship- There are many opportunities to bolster our member get-togethers via contribution (e.g. funding an in-water clinic or contributing toward meal costs) and/or providing products or services as promotional giveaways. These sponsorships are available at Platinum, Gold and Silver levels. Your contribution will be acknowledged on all related event pages throughout the site, on the official event banner (on prominent display at each event), as well as on the event t-shirts provided to all attendees.
  • Member Discount Cards- We are currently compiling a list of businesses that are interested in sponsoring the VIP Member Card. The card will consist of 12-15 business offering very special discounts to our members. We hope that the card will offer exclusive discounts to our members.
  • Newsletter Sponsorships- There are many opportunities to sponsor and advertise in our newsletters and emails. Our list consists of thousands of Florida boaters and boat enthusiasts.
  • Email Marketing (Eflyer Program)- These a stand-alone email marketing messages that are sent on your businesses behalf. We now have thousands of local boaters and boat owners available for you to market via email.

There’s Much More…

It is our goal to effectively promote your business and/or services by leveraging the opportunities for exposure that we have to offer.
