With over 350 entries, choosing a winner for the BoatWorks Bailout contest was no small feat. So many deserving owners, so many ailing boats—only one lucky recipient. In the end, the prize goes to John and Le Ann Smith of Rhode Island. Their Ericson 34 will undergo a thorough restoration over the coming months that you can follow in future issues of BoatWorks magazine. Full details of the winning entry can be found in the Spring issue of BoatWorks, on sale March 14.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to enter your boat.
