is a website devoted to the news, sights, sounds and stories from the world
of offshore performance boating. Not only is it a source of
information on offshore powerboat racing, poker runs and offshore-related
news, it's also a comprehensive
lifestyle resource, touching on all aspects
of the boating-watersports-beach lifestyle. As a result, we also include
information on popular waterfront destinations, tiki bars, marinas and other
popular locales, as well as related topics like clothing, drinks, music and
much more. If you like big fast boats, being around the water and the good
times that follow, then BigBadBoat is
a great place to be.
We know there are other performance boating sites out there, and they all serve a purpose. Some are extensions of printed magazines, some are news aggregators and media sites, and many are public forums, where news, opinions and information are exchanged. Our goal is not to compete with these sites, but to complement them...and offer something a little different.
BRINGING NEW PEOPLE TO THE
POSITIVE. NO PREACHING. NO
That said, we do encourage our readers to comment on stories and posts if they like, and we are always looking for suggestions and content from our readers. We have some ideas about building the [B3] community as we grow, but that won't include a forum. One of our biggest focuses includes our companion Twitter [B3] site - but more on that later.
A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE
You'll find that we're on top of our game from a technology perspective, too. That's why we're a top Twitter presence when it comes to performance boating. [B3] is available for iPhones and other mobile devices with a specially-designed mobile site...and you can subscribe to us on Amazon Kindle. We're working hard to reach out to EVERYONE. That's how to grow the sport.
Right now, we're primarily a team of One - directed by Mark Schweitzer, a former ad agency Creative Director, VP of Marketing and Public Relations, Ad writer and producer, and of course - performance boating enthusiast. With over 25 years of experience in creative marketing , advertising, writing and journalism, he directs the content development at [B3] and coordinates the collection of news, information and images that make the site possible.
In addition, [B3] relies on a growing list of contributors and content partners, who provide photography, editorial advice and lifestyle contributions. We are continually reaching out to a growing network of industry professionals and boating enthusiasts who are helping us get the word out about responsible fun on the water.
A NOTE ABOUT ATTITUDES - AND "SAFETY
VISIT OUR TWITTER PAGE:
This strong focus has allowed us to build a robust network of followers and friends on other boating -related sites and companies, not only in the US, but across the globe. We feel this "Big Picture" approach will help us build the audience for offshore performance boating in a major way, and help promote interest in the sport and the lifestyle.
