West Marine, the largest specialty retailer of boating supplies and accessories, along with Interlux paint, awarded Susi Bragg of Phoenix, AZ and Ann Bowman of Anacortes, WA each a $5000 gift card to West Marine through the “Dream Shopping Spree” sweepstakes that took place in all West Marine locations as well as on the company’s web site: www.WestMarine.com. Both winners were chosen by an independent Sweepstakes administrator and are avid boaters.

Susi Bragg, a retired counselor and school teacher, and her husband Ron bought a 22’ Mariah Talari last year. “I can't even begin to tell you how excited we are to win this contest! We have a beautiful boat, but it needs a little bit of tender loving care,” said Bragg.

Ann Bowman and her husband Jon enjoy cruising on their 63 ft., 90-ton steel trawler named “Constant”. Ann and Jon are outfitting Constant for a 3-month trip to northern British Columbia and the Queen Charlotte Islands. They look forward to using their gift card to purchase folding bicycles with motors, among many other things, for their trip.
