Default Hey Dano

Here's a tip for you.. Check the fuel gauge next time before you leave the dock.... And use your GPS.. Too bad you had to turn around, you missed a nice lunch. If Rick would drive in a straight line, Phil wouldn't have to take the wheel. And Rick, don't blame the auto pilot, we know it was you....

Phil is just giving Reggie and his boats a chance to shine on the race course!

Was in Florida about 4 years ago stopped in his shop and he sold me a couple of crossovers for the Bullet rebuild I was doing. He had had them for a while and gave me a great deal. He said well if you are doing a Bullet and have a few moment there is someone you should meet and proceeded to drive me over to meet Brownie. Phil defines customer service with looking to build relationships and future buisness and not just for the present
Kept the Bullet and the condo and joined the cig 20 restoration club.

I've known Philly since he was handsome. I must say that there is not a better-intentioned person in the entire marine industry than Philly. I have seen him absorb major expenses to make things right for his clients.

Someday I hope to be in a position to buy a new Lip-Ship Cigarette.

It was my understanding (and i may be wrong) that tom abraham was going to buy it as soon as he sold Endangered species - and i see it sold also, so i can just assume thats how the deal went.

Again i may be wrong

I've yet to meet Phil but he has been educating me on the Gladiators I'm interested in here as of late. I plan to pay him & Vanessaa visit next Sat.
