BUCYRUS, Ohio (May 13, 2008) - Baja Marine is pleased to announce the creation of the 2008 Hawkeye Boat Sales Split Decision Tour, presented by Hawkeye Boat Sales. The summer-long series of events will feature exclusive appearances by Split Decision, the customized 2008 Baja 40 Outlaw and matching 2008 Chevrolet Kodiak tow vehicle. Based in Dubuque, Iowa, Hawkeye Boat Sales is one of the largest Baja boat dealers in the world.
With stops across the Midwest, the tour schedule includes Hawkeye Boat Sales' annual roster of popular on-water parties and poker runs. Hawkeye hopes to expand that list to include more local events held by Baja enthusiasts, where the tour schedule permits.
Baja Marine, General Motors Corporation, Monroe Truck Equipment and a host of other high-performance boating suppliers all worked together to create Split Decision. Baja Marine's in-house design team created the one-of-a-kind graphics. The Split Decision 40 Outlaw is equipped with Mercury Racing performance equipment, including twin 700-hp 700 SCi engines, and the most advanced instrumentation from Livorsi Marine. The matching Chevrolet Kodiak pickup truck was specially customized by Monroe Truck Equipment Inc. with a variety of dazzling automotive upgrades.
"Everyone at Hawkeye is thrilled and honored to have the Split Decision duo attending our events this year," said Jeff Becker, general manager of Hawkeye Boat Sales. "They are a testament to Baja's tradition of performance and creativity, and will add a healthy dose of excitement to our event lineup. Our many customers and friends can't wait to check out and sample Split Decision out on the water."
