konakaiwatson1Robert Watson was looking to have his boat go "green" and is already seeing the benefits. As the first boat owner at Kona Kai Marina to use the Port of San Diego's Hull Paint Conversion grant funds and switch to an eco-friendly hull paint, the Kona Kai Marina rewarded Watson with one month of free slip rent.

"We encourage positive environmental actions and wanted to recognize these actions by offsetting the expense of a haul-out at a boatyard," said Peter Taliercio, Marina Manager of the 515-slip Kona Kai Marina on Shelter Island.
