Geico is no loss, how many performance boats did they insure........ZERO..... rather see some one who supports the offshore community win or a independent. Damn Caveman

Offshorejojo didn’t know this, had insurance with them and tried getting my Top Gun insured with them and when they told me they wouldn’t cover a offshore boat I thought who insures your big yellow Cat. I dropped them on auto insurance. Not disrespecting Scott John Haggin & others. Happy New Year & GO BLUE!

Geico only got into it because of friendship with one of the major players and for exposure/advertising. Had it not been for the people on the team and Reese being a Miss Geico face for so long they probably would have pulled out years ago. it was advertising plain and simple. Scotty and Marc did a great job running the boats and were great to the public, no sponsor ship deal lasts forever. and once its not profitable they move on.. it's business, nothing personal.
