I know in the past if you needed certain Cig items that Phil was a great source of help. Was just curious if he was moving to the new north Lauderdale location also.

uh, no.

Good luck out there Pierre.

One has to wonder why Skip and Cig would pull out from Martin and then in just a few months award a new franchise. Tres and the crew at Martin can rig, set-up and race Cigs like few else could.

Having said that, I don't know how much bearing one has on the other.

In the end, I think Pierre deserves our sincere congratulations on his franchise and I look forward to seeing more beautiful Cigs rolling out of his doors. Welcome!

Good luck Hideaway Marina.

I would venture a guess that Martin didnt want to floor plan 30 boats so Skip went looking for somebody who would...... He found National...... and now he found Hideaway..... I hope that Hideaway does well, and I hope that they have not taken offense to my post. I will always get my boats from dealers that Know their product..... and right now there are only 2 and one of them is named Tres

Gentlemen,
It's a great move on Cig's part to have Hideaway on board. Pierre is a very strong businessman, and has built a very strong business.
His people and facility are the best in the area, and now he has Cig to go along with it.
Hideaway will deliver... Pay attention. I think they'll do very well with Cig.

National is gone... Pierre will do it right!

Best of luck to the Hideaway team.



... Tres has a huge client basis... He doesn't need Cigarette... He'll get what he want's from his business without Cig... Tres is a racer at heart, and Cig is going in a different direction.

Tres is a champion.. Nobody will dispute that..
Cigarette just had a different agenda..

Oh, if anyone sees Bill Hionas ... Ask him where my money is???

Many folks often wonder why many of the class people in the marine industry don't post on OSO. They avoid it like the plague because there will always be someone that tries to stir up some chit. It just doesn't make sense.

What do you know about class, Your a Redskins fan.
