Default The ultimate ride Thanks Geico

Cambridge was awesome. we had a great time but to put the icing on the cake me, my wife, and 4 other of my friends all got a ride on the V bottom turbine geico boat. what a rush

after a ride on that I truly believe in turbines now. That boat just has insane power.

Thank you so much for the ride Geico. The driver John and everyone at geico was very nice and we all do really appreicate everything you guys did for us. thanks again Here are a few pics of all of us one the boat

Cool ride. That wasn't by any chance that ride the took place Saturday afternoon before all the race boats were clear of the course was it? Race Control didn't sound too happy about that one....
