Marine networking site debuts

TheOpenSea.com is a new, private online network specifically for recreational boaters and marine professionals. It was founded by Gary Druckenmiller and Todd Russell, who are guided by a group of respected marine advisors.

"With this level of firepower behind us, it is only a matter of time before TheOpenSea becomes a household name across the international marine landscape," Druckenmiller said in a statement. "The industry wants change and we're about to give it to them."

The company says it already has thousands of member boaters and hundreds of large and small boat businesses who've signed up, including Garmin, West Marine, Carolinian Boats and Westerbeke.

"TheOpenSea.com insists on both the social and professional interest of developing one's boating network," Druckenmiller said. "In the marine market, that takes into consideration the interests and needs of both boaters and marine professionals connecting their networks to each other in order to improve the logistics of the overall industry and help eliminate the fragmentation in communication that has plagued us for decades and gotten us to where we are right now."

On TheOpenSea.com, users can enter a marine and boat profile, add boating and product photos, load marine-oriented videos for personal and commercial use, write a log, join boating clubs and list your marine company. Users can also connect Twitter and Facebook accounts directly with TheOpenSea.

TheOpenSea.com is privately held and headquartered in Connecticut.
