Rex Marine & Norwalk Cove are sponsoring a Photo Contest and you are invited to submit your best boating pictures - from Spring Boat Prep to Fun in the Sun! 

Need some ideas? How about a shot of boat waxing or bottom
sanding (the blue smurf look), the kids helping, taking a break, proud new owners... be creative and show what boating means to you! 

Photos will be posted on Instagram and will be judged by how many "Likes" they receive.  So submit your photos and start voting once they are posted. The Instagram site will "go live" on May 15'th, so stay tuned! The photo "in the lead" will be included in Harbor Talk each week.

The winner of the Spring Photo Contest will be announced at the Rex June 25th Customer Appreciation / Open House Party and get a $ 50.00 Gift Certificate! 

Submit your photos to:

Average Hurricane Season Predicted

The Tropical Meteorology Project from Colorado State U. states "We anticipate that the 2016 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have approximately average activity.  The current weakening El Nińo is likely to transition to either neutral or La Nińa conditions by the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season.  While the tropical Atlantic is relatively warm, the far North Atlantic is quite cold, potentially indicative of a negative phase of the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation.  We anticipate a near-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean."
