Furuno Gets Social with Facebook Contest

Furuno Contest

 

Furuno USA’s 15K Fan Fest Giveaway offers you the chance to win a GP1670F Chart Plotter/Fish Finder and a NavNet TZtouch2 MFD

 Whether you use social media or not, there’s no denying that it is here to stay. Some use it to connect with old friends and to share memories with family, while others use it as their source for news and upcoming events. Furuno USA is looking to connect with you through Facebook and will be rewarding fans for “Liking” their page by running a contest.

Their goal is to hit at least 15,000 “Likes” by the end of 2015. For every 1,000 new “Likes” they hit, they will randomly draw a name from their entire Facebook Fan base and give that winner a Furuno GP1670F Chart Plotter/Fish Finder combo unit, valued at $700. If their Facebook page hits 15,000 “Likes” by December 31st, they will up the ante by giving away one of their recently introduced NavNet TZtouch2 12.1” MFDs, valued at $4,000. They will also be giving out hats and t-shirts along the way.

“We are looking for new ways to connect and communicate with our customers,” stated Jeff Kauzlaric, Advertising & Communications Manager for Furuno USA. “Social media allows us to not only provide information, but also receive information from customers. This social interaction will allow us to be more customer focused and service oriented, while gaining some new friends along the way.”

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
