That is cool that is why I said it would be geographic for the bottom couple. I figure for reasons that Jafo stated that the top one anyhow would be the same. Everyone calls our type of boats CIGAR boats

Jafo I am talking PERFORMANCE BOATS. I think that there is some serious name recognition going on out there. I feel that Cig. with Don A. has done the best job so far.

Audio - There is absolutely no doubt about the name recognition. MOST average people call our style of boat "Cigarette or Cigar". I'm sure someone will want to argue about it...

Key Words - "Performance" and "Recognized"....not to be confused with popular?
Cigarette and Fountain are definitely at the top, but in my opinion, Fountain is probably "Recognized" easier/more often than Cig...from a distance, most of them look like a Cig, EXCEPT the Fountain since Reggie has the beak w/platform. After that, it would be "Skater", if it falls into the "performance" category.
