What’s new on the Web


This roundup of new marine website features includes information from Stratos, the Waterway Guide and SureShade.

A new line of Stratos-branded sportswear is now available on the redesigned Stratos Wear website, the company announced.

Visitors to the site will find an enhanced collection of hats, T-shirts, collared shirts, hoodies and jackets - for men, women and children - and Stratos accessories.

"There's a distinct quality that is common among Stratos owners and that's a desire to stand out from the crowd and a true appreciation for high-performance, aggressive styling and quality," vice president of marketing Bart Schad said in a statement.

"The new Stratos apparel speaks directly to this crowd of anglers and boat owners - giving them a way to display their Stratos pride any day of the year. We're pleased with the new look and feel of the Stratos apparel and the online store - we believe our customers will be, too," he added.

The Waterway Guide added a new discussion board to its website, allowing boaters to communicate with each other on matters of interest along the waterways covered by the guide.

The board allows users to post comments and questions about navigational information, points of interest, types of boats and equipment, and anything else boating-related that may be of concern or interest to other boaters.

"We hope the Waterway Guide discussion board will become the main port for sharing information and experiences between boaters traveling the coastal and inland waterways of the eastern United States," the company said in a statement.
