Thumbs down Cigarette Poster in Powerboat Mag-WTF???

I just got this months Powerboat magazine and for the second month in a row, there is a pull-out Cigarette poster in it. Nice poster of Phil running the "Offshore V-Bottom of the Year", catching some air and a hot chic laying half naked with an "orgasmic" look on her face.

Here is where it gets interesting, on either side of the chic, there are Mercury Racing 850sci engines on the poster and a Mercury logo at the bottom of the poster like is in all of the Fountain ads. WTF???? Didn't the "Offshore V-Bottom of the Year" have Zul power in it??


If CRT is doing so great, why do they have to be misleading with their advertising??? Last months Cig poster in Powerboat was the Performance Group's Maximus.....but I hear that's quite a story also, maybe another day for that one when it all comes out.

Go back to work Craig....

As usual your little brain is thinking too much.

If this issue is the outrage in your life,,, indeed you,,,, my friend, live a cherished civil servant life.

Us normal non-tax money consuming folk will mire in our tax burden for you civil servants to be outraged about some mis-labeled poster with an aquatic tart on it!





Oh yahh...

I think Lip Ship is the only on putting aftermarket motors in the cigs. Cig has Some kind of agreement with merc that they can only manfg the boat with merc power .

I heard merc doesn't like Zul power in the Boat of the year ,And its not the first time Richie supply's the engine for the Cigs for the Offshore boat of the Year
