Congratulations to our Summer Photo-Story Contest Winner: Jay Ryczkowski!

Jay really knows how to Live Life at Sea Level! Here was his story:

“During the Spring, my father and I look forward to fishing offshore in the Atlantic waters off the coast of South Carolina in my 2018 Cutwater C302. We typically head out to the Gulfstream (about 80 – 100 miles offshore) looking to catch dolphin (mahi-mahi), tuna, wahoo, and billfish (sailfish and marlin), and with the twin Yamaha 300HP outboards and 300-gallon fuel tank, this is easily attainable. This year, we caught some great dolphin and made some great memories together. The Garmin suite of electronics, along with multiple rod holders and other fishing aspects of the C302, coupled with all of the comforts of a luxury cruiser, really makes for a versatile boating platform.”

Very awesome! We will be reaching out to you via email with your winnings!

Congrats to our runner-ups:
