I guess now you are going to meet up with some very strong local competition

Looks like fun.

I think you could still do it, just STAY OUT OF MY TURF!

jk...kinda...

I'm for your idea to bring people over and stay in hotels and support local business - just against people who dive and fish our waters while purchasing nothing and leaving their trash when they go. Especially those that setup shop locally and illegally and never leave. Not just the boating industry either!

Hi Ryan, would be interested to hear how you got on with this idea. Did you end up pressing the go button?

If you are ever in need of suspension seats for you and your customers, take a look at what we make, they may be what you are after.

Suspension seats for shock mitigation - Shark Seating

Cheers,
Dan.
