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 think I’d want to try the QE2 from New York to England, just for kicks. Never been on a cruise – go big or go home!

    BOAT ME!

    Hubby wants a sailboat large enough to go to Europe from Florida but small enough for just the two of us to handle. I’d rather do that trip on a luxury cruise ship.

    BOAT ME! I love sailboat. We live on Lake Michigan, and taking out the sailboat every spring is something I look forward to each year.
