Gotta love this! Geico in the spotlight and the first boat coming at you at speed is a Fountain.
Lucky for them the announcer didn't ask for a 200 mph ride in the Caveman boat.
P.S. No offense here to the Gieco guys.

What puzzles me is that this industry is not that large...rumors go one of three ways...they come to fruition as the truth, a lie or sometimes incorrect information.
I'm not saying anything about anyone on either side here...this is hypothetical. How do people who screw people in an industry this small continue to do it...again and again...over and over...time and time again?
I don't think it's because the offshore community is forgiving or forgetful...but for the world of me, I just can't figure it out. If you burn me once, shame on you...if you burn me twice shame on me...that saying might be old, but it's true.
It's just odd to me how this industry seems to pull such "dishonest", for lack of a better term, people out of the woodwork...they conduct business, take advantage of people, somehow or another sleep well at night (maybe they take Ambien) and then get up the next day and do it all over again.
Someone, help explain this to me.
My 2 cents for what its worth.... This is a problem between Gieco (the company) and SBI that they have decided to settle in court. The only effect this has on any of use is that it's a news story. Neither party has asked for help from the boards. Both parties are involved in attempting to continue the sport. Collectively we should probably allow these two parties to take care of their buisness on their own. Trashing either party does nothing to further the sport. SBI has races scheduled, Gieco is supporting races. Turning this into a Long Duck Dong tricks national marine thread will bring no remedy to either party or benefit anyone here. It is a private matter between 2 parties and we should probably respect that as we have nothing to gain, but much to loose draging these parties thru the mud.
please read the fine print
This post has nothing to do with SBI or Geico, just an observation on this industry in general and my personal experience with another company.
Since AMF arrived at on the scene, Haggin's money and now Geico's Money has always been spent on promoting the sport!
Unfortunately, as they arrived on the scene so did the vultures,
There are numerous people that have tried to get their hands in the cookie jar.
There are a lot of poser's, and greedy people out there, singling them out is easy, because when the money is all gone so are they.
