Given the current state of Offshore racing, Skip looks like a very smart guy!!

Hey BH,

Poker Runs Sell Boats - Racing Sells NOTHING!

So change the name to " Cigarette Poker Run Team" ! Why use racing when you don't support it? BH

I was doing online banking the day before Christmas and I notice a charge from CRT. My wife ordered some stuff and they told her it would ship from Florida to Ohio in 3 days putting it here on Christmas Eve. I told her not to expect it.

When we got home Christmas eve the package was sitting at the door.

UPS and Cigarette came through with my presents.

What exctly does reflect well on them these days?
We on the West Coast enjoy used older Cigs, because you would never know the new company exists! How about a little exposure boys? And yes, poker runs sell boats. Ask Paul and Mike. The easiest sell I ever did was to a guy that went on a friends OL at a poker run. I sold him his Custom 37 over the freakin phone!

i have to say cig and ups came through for xmas. i deal with tres or glen martin for anything, but i made a call to cigarette to get some pictures of some flag paint jobs,for some ideas. tough to just get someone that speaks english. forget about getting some info. bud did call me back on the issue. in any business its the details that count. if you can win a guy with small details, you know hell come back when he is ready to drop 500,000. just my 2 cents....
