Florida boaters have a new Web tool


MarineFuel.com and BoatFlorida.com announced a partnership between the two groups.

The agreement gives BoatFlorida.com members direct access to MarineFuel.com's search tools and information database, regardless of which regional site they frequent most.

BoatFlorida.com's network of sites consists of more than 20 regionally based web portals designed for boaters throughout Florida. Members enjoy social networking opportunities with other boaters in their area, as well as Florida destination information, boating information, news and other resources.

Fuel Dock Prices and E-Marina are MarineFuel.com's proprietary search-and-compare tools, giving boaters across the United States and the Caribbean a centralized and easy-to-use environment to locate specific marina and fuel information.

"It's a win-win for both organizations, as well as for the boating industry. Each of our teams are focused on encouraging more frequent boat use by providing cost-effective online tools and resources to our members," said John Kavaliauskas, president of BoatFlorida.com, in a statement.
