“No matter how interconnected we get on a global level, all life is still local. If you live, work or play on the coast, what is happening in the natural environment around you is vitally important; every boater always has an eye on the weather,” John Hanson, Jr., founder and publisher of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, said in a statement. “But as social beings, what is happening in the local towns and businesses is equally important. This network of sites is kind of like the town dock where the weather, local knowledge and gossip are found all year long.”
