More than $120,000 worth of boats were awarded to three winners last weekend as part of the Northwest Marine Trade Association’s regional Grow Boating campaign.

Two boats were awarded last Saturday to grand prize winners of the 2008 Northwest Salmon Derby Series. Jim Hardey of Tacoma, Wash., was the winner of the adult division prize — a 23-foot, $71,000 fishing boat from Pacific Boats. The kids division prize — a 14-foot, $15,000 Stabi-Craft fishing boat — was won by a 5-year old boy from Rainier, Wash.

The next day, NMTA’s new summerlong promotion with Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners ended when Steve Reeves of Tacoma turned the winning key on a special edition Seattle Mariners Bayliner 205.

NMTA created its own Grow Boating fund in 2003 by collecting 75 cents per square foot of space rented by exhibitors during the group’s annual Seattle Boat Show each January.
