I have bought two Cigarettes from Glen at Martin Marine, and will buy my next one from the Martinís. Over the past 2+ years I have gotten to know Glen, Ralph and Tres very well, they have always been straight forward to and have gone out of their way to help me whenever possible.

During the FPC 2001 Key West Poker run I had a problem with the electric door on my Playboy. I called Tres and he sent someone down to Key West to fix the problem.

I would definitely recommend Martin Marine!

Have never dealt with Martin Marine direct for sales, but know people who have. I myself have dealt with Tres on a number of occaisions. If he is any indication of the service you would get at Martin Marine, I would offer top score all the way.

I guess you could call Ralph the Godfather of Poker Runs, as he and Norval Stahly put on the first one, way back in 1979 ( I think ) when they were with Everglades Marina.

They are some of the best to work with we have found.
Enjoy the boat when you get it.

Ralph is a very interesting person to talk to, he was the first person to sell boats for Don Arronow and Reggie Fountain. He really knows the history of these boats!

Jamie I have been trying to talk Ralph into putting on a poker run but have not had any luck yet.

I have a friend who bought Tres old 38 Top Gun race boat last year. My friend wanted to have some custom work done to the boat and Tres promised the boat would be done by Dec. 24 of last year. As of 1 week ago, the boat is still not finished!! He blames the upolstery guy for the delay, maybe its true. But this is a little excessive for the timeframe from when the boat was promised. I am not stating anything that isn't a fact.
