Fab Freebie: Under The Sea

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below!***

And the randomly selected person who’s starting their new year off with prize is… Jennifer (who answered this week’s question with a Canadian folk lyric – which I had to look up, mind you: “Lukey’s boat is painted green, Ha, me boys!”). Congrats Jennifer!

Raise your hand if you know what a bathymetric chart is. I didn’t before this giveaway, but it’s basically like a topographic map for what lies underwater. But the more important thing to know is that the married duo behind Below the Boat turns these charts into gorgeous, laser-cut, hand-assembled works of art. They’re beautifully intricate and fascinatingly detailed. And they’ve got lots of bodies of water from the east coast, west coast, and even some lakes in between. One of you is gonna win up to $300 worth of bathymetric chart-y goodnesst this week. So… ahoy!

    Boat Me!

    I would love a second home on a house boat, nestled somewhere warm and tropical. With a little kayak to be my only transportation to the “real” world.

    BOAT ME! I’ve actually never been on a boat before in my life! But I think a cruise ship sounds awesome because then I would get a trip on a boat and a vacation.

    BOAT ME!
    Me and boats seem to get along fairly well. Love speedboats, had a great time on a catamaran in the Caribbean. I say let’s try a luxury cruise!

    BOAT ME!

    I love sailing, but my favorite memory of being on a boat was crewing an eight rowing shell. I was on a college crew team at Oxford when I was there, and you just can’t beat being out on the river early in the morning when the mist is hovering over the city and your crew is cutting gracefully through the water. A kayak or canoe gets closer to that, so I like them, too.

    Boat me!! I would love to take a luxury cruise around the world to see all the sites, although a sail boat around our home city of Dubai would be wonderful as well!
