Hello Insiders! We will be in Ocean City celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday this July. We have been there and the boats that ride along the coast line sometimes have messages like happy birthday or happy anniversary. How would I go about getting a boat to have a message of Happy birthday for my daughter? Thank you!

There was only one boat that was doing that type of advertising last summer, the SeaBoard. To find out everything you need to know to get a message to your daughter, and maybe her picture too, call them at 443.235.1309 or take a look at their website.

You could also consider doing a banner plane message, although these are generally more expensive and less customizable than the SeaBoard. If you want fo find out about them take a look at the Ocean Aerial Ads website or call them at 410.641.2484.

I got the chance to meet owners for each of these businesses a few years ago. They are both really nice guys who seem easy to work with and who love what they do!

Hi and happy birthday to your daughter!  Sixteen is a banner year!  

You can contact the Sea Board Media company to have your message digitally displayed on the boat as it cruises the coast.  You'll find information about it here:  http://theseaboard.com/ocean-city-boat-personal-messages   or call them at (443) 235-1309 .

Excellent idea.  I always wanted to do that as well.  Your question motivates me to possibly do it this summer.

Hi Robin,

What a great idea and I bet she would love that!

As Karl mentioned, the Sea Board is a great option. Just make sure to be very clear on dates and the street were you will be at the beach!

Be sure to let them know what street you are staying on when you vacation.  They display the sign longer and more often when they get to your street.  That is a very nice thing to do for your daughter!

Hey Robin as the other insiders mentioned the sea board is your place to get your message for your daughter. It's so cool to see your messages go by all summer long
