be working with Boats.Net. Tom and all of his staff have been phenomenal to
work with, and the campaign makes sense for both entities. It's amazing to

industries. I work to fish, and it was through a mutual friend, Mike Hodgdon,
that this relationship was launched and will remain for years to come."
