Congrats to our Lakeland Boating BWI
 Writing Contest Award Winners!


Congratulations are in order for Lakeland Boating regular contributors Capt. Tom Serio and Greg Proteau for taking home awards in the 2014 Boating Writers International (BWI) Annual Writing Contest!

Serio won second place in the Photography category for his feature “The Docks After Dark” (January 2014, p. 32), which showcased the stunning look of boats on display at night during the 2013 Fort Launderdale International Boat Show.

Proteau snagged a Certificate of Merit in the Boating Issues, News and Analysis category for his piece “Avoiding the Pitfalls” (September 2014, p. 31), which shines a light on the top five most common boat insurance claims and what people can do to try and avoid them.
