A new boating Web site aims to put boaters and boater wannabes in touch with the people that can fulfill their wishes. The site,, features boats for sale, equipment for sale, as well as services such as insurance, boat service, and marinas.

Pete Riopel, a financial planner based in Larkspur, started the site after 20-plus years as a sailor.

“It seemed like a fun and interesting thing to do,” he said.

The site allows users to do a key-word search to find what they want, and also allows the search to be e-mailed to the user if new matches turn up. It also allows up to eight photos to run with a listing.

“The advantage of my site.” Said Riopel, “is that you can narrow down your search.” As with many Web sites, users are required to sign up to use the site. There is no fee to sign up.

While Riopel is computer literate, he had to learn new things to get his Web site up and running. He had to learn HTML, and about boating throughout the Bay Area. He also plans to paint with a broad brush on the site.

“I tried to cover basically everything.” Riopel said, “Everything that is boating is here, and what is here is about boating.”
