Actually, we have SIX winners. And, we have a name for the boat being rowed across the ocean this December by a courageous team of women from around the US. The name the boat contest, which ran in March of this year, was sponsored by Ask the Boater and Custom Boat Names.
There were hundreds of great boat names submitted, but the grand prize winner - chosen by the team - is a good one. I have to admit, I had to Google it to figure out its meaning. The winning name - Festina Lente - couldn't be more appropriate for a boat that is being rowed across the Atlantic Ocean.
Congratulations to our First Prize winner, Larry, who came up with the winning boat name and is receiving over $500 worth of prizes, including:
1. Perricone M.D. skin care products (value $100)
(Includes: Full-sized Face Finishing Moisturizer and Nutritive Cleanser)
2. In home computer service from NerdsToGo (value $100)
3. Defying Empire - A book by Thomas Truxes (value $30)
4. Autographed copy of the book Guide to Pirate Parenting
5. Russell Organics gift set of Organic Shower Gel from SpaSkin.com (value $64)
6. Vinyl Boat Lettering Package from Custom Boat Names (value $100)
7. Gift Certificate to Boat Name Gear (value $100)
Additionally, five runner ups, Joe, John, Ron, Lou, and William, were chosen at random and will win prizes valued from $20 to $70 each.
Thank you to everybody that helped make this contest so successful, and to our sponsors without whom we would be giving away a crappy thank you note a pat on the back.
Congratulations to all our winners, and most of all, congratulations to the team for finally having a new boat name!
