  1. What did it get us

    How much did the marine industry pay this guy to make the video would be the question.
    I like the video and all but I’m not sure it got us much other than an expensive invoice which we can’t afford.  Kind of like grow boating leads.
    It’s time to take a serious look at the dollars that go into discover boating and what they get us.
