Marinalife, a leading online marine travel service serving boaters and captains as an authority on boat travel for the U.S., Canada, Bahamas, Caribbean, and Central America, is celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Marinalife was founded in February 2000 by avid boater Joy McPeters as a result of her own search for online marina-related information.

"Staying true to our mission for 10 years has allowed us to tailor our services and products to best serve our members when they're planning and taking trips," McPeters said in a statement. "We've grown and improved thanks to our member feedback ... and we are excited for many more years of growth and travel with the boating community."

Later this year, the company will rollout a redesigned Web site that incorporates more real-time data, additional user-generated content and more sophisticated travel tools and services. Also, as part of the 10-year celebration, members can participate in a marina contest.

Members are invited to vote for the best transient marina and the marina with the best customer service. Voting can be done at the Web site, or by e-mailing
