Brothers win Triton 16 Storm in video contest

Boats.com and BoatTrader.com announced that Carson and Carter McBride of Springdale, Ark., are the winners of the "Tap into Summer" video contest.

Carson, 9, and Carter, 6, are avid anglers and came up with the video idea while "pretend fishing," something they enjoy. Along with their father, Aaron, they picked up their Triton 16 Storm at the Brunswick aluminum boat manufacturing facility in Lebanon, Mo., where they received a VIP tour.

"The viral marketing impact of video is an increasingly important marketing element, and Carson and Carter's video is a great example," said Kim Rocco, brand manager of Boats.com and BoatTrader.com, in a statement. "Their creativity and enthusiasm for fishing is evident. They are the next generation of boaters."
