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!

I’d love to go sailing with my best friend . . . except in a boat that’s bigger than hers so it won’t capsize.
Carmen Ganjehsani says
BOAT ME! I would love to take a luxury cruise on the Mediterranean.
BOAT ME! I’ve wanted to try kayaking for some time. I’m hoping to try it out come warmer weather!
I’d choose my husband’s fishing boat, out on the Chesapeake Bay, any day!
Boat me! These are gorgeous! I’d love to be canoeing with my honey somewhere warm and sunny. Happy New Year!
Boat Me! A catamaran or sailboat around Fiji or Bora Bora…I’m flexible like that. :)
Kara Joy says
I have glorious memories of taking a sailboat around the coast of Queensland (Australia) as a child, docking at various white sand beaches. But I haven’t sailed much since, so I would need an expert to take me …
I think my comment disappeared!
I like a huge ocean liner with a two room cabin.
BOAT ME! I’d like to spend more time on a houseboat!
Ellen F. says
BOAT ME! Sailboat – catamaran, preferably headed toward the BVIs, sleeping in hammock on deck. Nothing better in the world.
Boat me! I dream of sailing on a large sailboat in the Gulf of Mexico…thanks to Benjamin Button!
Boats and me don’t mix so well, so it would have to be something Huge. Something that felt more like a floating Mall than a sea going vessel.

BOAT ME! I wanna go on a Caribbean cruise so badly!
Boat me! I love sailboats :)
Kate H says
BOAT ME! Some of my favorite memories are of canoeing in the boundary waters in mminnesota… Will portage for fun. (Wearing your backpack and carrying your upside-down canoe on your shoulders so that you can cross a body of land to get to another piece of water.)
BOAT ME! I’d prefer to be on a pontoon floating around on a lake with friends and family.
BOAT ME! My dad’s sailboat.
BOAT ME! It is on my bucket list to kayak down the Chicago River, so I’ll go with kayak! Never has an arm workout been so relaxing.
BOAT ME! Would love to do paddle boarding on Lake Lanier in Georgia!
I’m not the strongest swimmer and one of my ultimate fears is being swept up in a tidal wave (we live in PA – don’t think it’s going to happen anytime soon) so I’m more of a sit by the pool kinda gal.
I would take a sail boat around New Zeal-and.
BOAT ME! I want to be on a crabbing boat! Fresh shellfish! The best
I would love to spend some time on a luxury cruise, although I’m sure some paddling in an ocean kayak would be healthier for me :)
Kristen in Hawaii says
BOAT ME! And put me on a 140′ sailing yacht…
I would love to sail around the world!
I would love, love, love to sail around the Greek islands, stopping at little ports and swimming off the boat. Ahhh….
“BOAT ME!”I could definitely handle a luxury cruise in the new year!
I hope you have a very Happy New Year’s Eve!
BOAT ME! Kayaking in the Sea of Cortez, is a one of my favorite things I’ve done.
malia s says
BOAT ME!! Definitly loves cruises. Ultimate adventure would the greek isles
BOAT ME! My grandfather was in the merchant marines and my parents own a little boat on a lake, so growing up I spent lots of time tubing and hanging out on the lake. Although, taking a cruise is my ultimate favorite boating activity :-)
Rosemary Palmer says
Boat Me – a luxury cruise – no cooking and 24 hr room service.
I would love, love, love to sail around the Greek islands, stopping at little ports and swimming off the boat.
Any kind of boat would make me happy. I think I might slightly prefer a luxury cruise, but next in line would probably be a chartered catamaran. Oh, to be rich!
Boat me! Catamaran. We’ve taken a few trips to PR and each time we had to do a catamaran tour. Loooove it!
bria s. says
oh man, I’ve been on a weird map prints kick lately, i must have a subconscious need to travel in ’13! I’ve wanted to take a Mediterranean cruise ever since I saw a Samantha Brown show that featured one! Happy new year Petersiks!
bria s. says
and wow! these are gorgeous!
Boat me, I’m from the east coast!
We’re more of the adventure boating type. White water rafting is my favorite & my husband is an avid kayaker.
Susannah H says
Boat me! Sailboat for me!
I’m partial to sailboats!
BOAT ME! – Honestly, I’m terrified of being in open water in a boat!! I always think a whale will come and flip it over. lol – but I think oceans/lakes are incredible to look at!
Andrea J says
BOAT ME! I would LOVE to learn how to sail. Around the San Juan Islands (where my hubby and I spent our honeymoon!). :)
BOAT ME! I’d choose a cruise!
BOAT ME! I would love to be on about a 40 foot boat sailing around the Florida Keys right now! Or a small fishing boat on the local river.
Happy New Year!
Amy Kathryn says
