Editors Log from Marinalife Founder Joy McPeters.
Dear Fellow Boaters:
I cannot believe it’s been 20 years since we started Marinalife! During this wild and crazy ride, we met so many amazing people who helped us along the way. Getting ready to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Marinalife gives me pause for reflection and digging up old photos in the basement reminded me of the good times and challenges of the last two decades.
This issue is dedicated to the friends, family and members who shared my journey along 20 years of Marinalife. In the article, The Story of Marinalife, we step back in time to remember our beginning and growth. In the Visionaries piece, we showcase leaders in the marine industry, and the Port Personalities feature extends our appreciation to three partners whose influence on the magazine is treasured and continues today. And do not miss other terrific features in this issue such as the Best Snorkeling & Diving in the Caribbean, eco-friendly boating and a cruising tale through romantic Greek islands.
As Marinalife continues to evolve and gear up for the next 20 years, we are proud of the team who will be instrumental in our progress. While we move toward the next milestone, you can count on our adventurous editors and writers who weave their love for travel into every issue, the marketing and sales team who keeps a watchful eye on changes in the boating industry, and our attentive, proactive and very patient customer service reps who will help you chart every step of your journey.
The “20” theme that appears in this edition will continue throughout the year while we celebrate our anniversary. Look out for contests, specials and other promotions to recognize this achievement.
We thank all our readers who are a huge part of our success. We could not do it without you.
Joy McPeters, Marinalife Founder
