Still in all, great to see that Geico has used one of the most recognized boats in Offshore Powerboat Racing.
Yes I agree.

I can tell you when the crowd forms at the dock
they love the Spool up.

Silence or music is no substitute for the MUSIC that an Offshore Powerboats, power plants makes. Hell, that is what it is all about. Have you ever seen a commercial for NASCAR with the cars running around the track in silence or to music?

Question

It's on in Michigan. Only problem Geico wouldn't quote insurance on my little 27'. Too much power for the hull . Built motor to merc 500 racing specs. Too fast???? But progressive did. See ya in Key West

Yes it's on both channels. So Scotty how much cat insurance does Geico offer? Up to 50' and turbines too? I'll believe it when I see it. Hell I bet they don't write cat insurance. I bet they have to go through Markel.
