David Siesel is the grand-prize winner of Marinalife's sweepstakes to celebrate its best marinas contest, in which Nantucket Boat Basin was voted the best transient marina.

The sweepstakes generated more than 575 submissions and Siesel won a two-night slip stay at the Nantucket Boat Basin and other prizes valued at $5,000.

Siesel has been a Marinalife member since 2005 and he keeps his 42-foot trawler in Apponaug, R.I.

Along with two nights at the Boat Basin, his prize includes dinner at the White Elephant's Brant Point Grill, spa treatments at the White Elephant Spa, admission to The Whaling Museum and a fishing or sailing excursion with a Nantucket captain.

The contest will be held again this year. Boaters are encouraged to capture their experiences at marinas as they cruise so they can vote for their favorite this fall.
