Sea Tow Member Wins "Rig Your Boat With $10,000!" Sweepstakes
Brian Iannacone is the winner of Sea Tow's “Rig Your Boat With $10,000!” Sweepstakes. Iannacone is a resident of northern New Jersey and a Sea Tow member. Iannacone says he was suprised to learn he had won and that his family did not believe him.
He joined Sea Tow in July 2010 after purchasing his first boat, a 1995 Rinker cuddy cabin. He and his brother made a small investment in the vessel so their young families could explore boating. Their kids, ages 3 and 4, fell in love with the water and so Iannacone plans to upgrade by purchasing his friend's 2001 Lawson 270 Cabrio. His friend is shopping for a new boat, too.
