Free Furuno, you could get a makeover!


You’d think I’d know more about this than I actually do! Apparently Voyaging Magazine—for which I write a column called Helm Shot (only the first one is online, unfortunately)—is running a ‘makeover’ style contest in which the winner will get a whole Furuno NavNet vx2 electronics system installed in his or her boat. Nice! Now Voyaging (created by PMY) is about powerboat cruising, so you have to own that sort of boat. Then you need to take some decent pictures of your current setup and write an essay of up to 1,200 words describing it and explaining “how winning brand-new Furuno equipment would improve your cruising lifestyle.”  The winner will be chosen by a panel of Voyaging and Furuno experts (including me) “based on the creativity and originality of the essay and photographs entered.” I’m sure Voyaging and Furuno will do a lot of promotion about this contest (which ends in June), but how many folks will actually enter? Sounds like an opportunity.

If, on the other hand, you’ve already put together a cruising power boat electronics package that you are particularly proud of, maybe you’d let me profile it and you for Voyaging. There’s no prize, except for a few free copies, but it is fun. Write me.
