    When you own a performance powerboat a proper hauler is a usual additional requirement. The extent owners go to make their boat haulers unique and custom varies greatly and some pull out all the stops to make them unique.



    For Michael and Nikki Pierce who own a one of kind 45 Cigarette Maximus they did in fact pull out all the stops to make their Freightliner Hauler something special.

    For many something as simple as fittings might just be taken for granted. But for the folks at Hardin Marine fittings are a key component of the rigging in nearly every performance boat on the water. For years the industry was limited to brass, aluminum, or even cast iron plumbing fittings to plumb their boats essential items such as exhaust, cooling system, sea strainers and such.

    Hardin Marine changed or redirected the evolution of marine plumbing when they unveiled the ...

    Pirates of Lanier...Goal Shattered: John Woodruff and Nancy set a goal. They said they were going to raise $400K for the charities supported by the Lanier Partners and the Pirates of Lanier Poker Run. Hard work and determination yielded a result that exceeded their goal. The final numbers are not in yet but we can comfortably state that at least $410,00.00 was raised. Auction item totals are still coming and the overwhelming generosity was everywhere. A lighted hula hoop sold ...

    For nine years now I have been running and doing instruction on many different types of powerboats doing my job as an instructor with the Performance Boat School. The boats we encounter usually have a similar set up and configuration of one or another. But, every once in awhile we come across something different and they can be pretty exciting.

    Last November Powerboat Nation reported on a 338 Skater on display in Key West and just last month I had the privilege

    The 11th Annual Boyne Thunder Poker Run was another great success. Many of our friends were part of the 100 plus boat fleet that gathered in this picturesque local in Northern Michigan. With crystal clear waters and great conditions these powerboaters united to have great summer fun but also raise money for two great causes. Camp Quality and Challenge Mountain.



    All our friends who attended

    Recently Tres Martin has been spending a ton of hands on time with a boat that I was very familiar with. When not doing Boat School Tres has had this 39 MTI in months of re-hab and every single piece of it has been redone, by hand, by Tres.



    Sometimes a re-rig is best done by completing a full rig job and that's just what Tres did. All the cable runs were pulled and thrown away, the holes were filled, motor mounts trashed,
