Super bowl or Boat Show

Wow we are looking for a great weekend here at the store.  Kind of hard not to route for the Carolina Panthers because they are so close to us.  I know that all of here in the store will have the game on the television except Scott who will be trying to watch it on […]

Getting caught up and rested

The boys are back in town.

Well we are off to a great marine season thanks to our guys at the NYC Boat Show.  Scott and Brian put a huge effort into getting equipment to and from the show and then setting up and tearing it down before and after the show.  They put in a 50 hour work week in […]
