Take part in the first ever Seaway Showdown bracket challenge!

As we approach March Madness (college basketball playoffs) in the States, we wanted to have some bracket fun of our own. By clicking the link, you can help choose the vessels that will go on to the second round. Prior to the second round being posted, each bracket will be seeded based on votes received in round one. There is no specific seeding for round one. All vessels listed came as suggestions of site fans and/or based on proximity/ties to the Seaway.

Note: Not all shipping lines are represented. Many ships in this year’s challenge were passed up – most for no specific reason other than only 64 total vessels were selected (similar to college basketball).
