A free online community was created for Central Florida boaters called BoatBrevard.com.

The site allows boaters to find out about hot spots, islands and upcoming events, as well as share photos, plan get-togethers and share knowledge and experiences.

There are more than 40,000 registered boaters in Brevard County, and the site provides an opportunity for them to connect more easily, ask questions, socialize and give pertinent information to boating in the area.

John Kavaliauskas created this social network and boating resource.
