This confuses me.

T2x is completely right. visconsi's boat was named after his fathers boat, which was around before copelands
Are you saying Visconsi was running the Popeyes name first?

I was told that Dominic Jr named the boat after his Dad's race boat back in the seventies. A tribute!

2Tx and halfnutz are 100% correct!
dominic's boat was named in tribute of his fathers race boat.
And yes his fathers boat was before coplands.
regardless, its time to get the rigs ready. C yall on the water

I purchased the 05 canopied Nor-Tech. Al actually owns 8 Popeyes locations still in addition to Diversified seasonings which owns the rights to sell AFC Popeyes seasonings to all Popeyes spices until 2050. He also has Copelands rest. as well as several hotels and all of the Improvs comedy clubs. I will be running in Biloxi with Popeyes as my sponsor. We will be in Cat Lite. I am still intersted in Buying a boat from Doug Wright as soon as possible. WE will not use the Popeye cartoon character as our liscensing deal with King Syndicate is over. I raced a 40 Skater in Orange beach in S.B.I. Also same boat in Worlds for APBA in 03. I consider it a privilage to carry the name. Dominic and Big Al are both hard acts to follow and a credit to the Popeyes or Popeye name in offshore racing history. Just my .02
