Nominations will then be sorted and reviewed before voting opens on July 29 and will conclude on Aug. 21. Winners will be announced in the Best of the Boat magazine publication, slated to hit stands in November.

With so many new businesses in town, new business owners should nominate themselves to ensure they are on the list.
