Tried it down here for a year, 1994, but just couldn't get the line to catch on.
All the years I spent at Everglades helping to make this area Cigarette, Apache, Fountain and Formula country hurt my credibility trying to tell my customer base that now Hustler was the boat to buy.
I had a partner back then that freaked at all the advertising money we spent. We decided we weren't strong enough to wait until the line caught on. Great boats, just couldn't sell them here then.
