    I know you guys are new into the boat business. I am new into fishing tournaments. I was wondering if you are interested in sponsoring someone with a boat and help rep you and create buze for you at the local tournaments and shows. I would love to talk to you about it.

      Thanks for the interest in sponsorship. What type of boat do you now own? We would like to have all our sponsored fishermen in newer Triton boats. Are you prepared to purchase a Triton at a pro staff level pricing and help represent our dealership?
      Please feel free to call me at 704 634-1157 . This is my personal cell and we can discuss further our options.
