Dave’s Custom Boats rolls out for the rest of the 2013 Poker Run Season. They already have some big events under their belt earlier this year, Miami Boat Show Poker Run, DCB Regatta, and Desert Storm. This previous weekend Win Farnsworth’s 41 was at the Texas Outlaw Challenge and now they are off to many more events, trying to get to as many as they can get in. Building Boats, running a business and having so many days away on the road might seem like a dream but it can become a real challenge. Tony called me today from the road in West Texas, anxious to get to the water over the weekend and leave the long and straight road behind him. And they did just that!
The remaining perfect world schedule may or may not be doable and the crew at DCB has set the bar high. After Texas they are off to some of to some of the most beautiful waterways in North America, Shushwap in BC – August 2-3, Thousand Islands -August 8-11, Big Cat in Discovery Bay – August 16-18, LOTO – August 21-25, Lake Cumberland September 5-8, Lake Powell Challenge -September 13-15, DCB Regatta – September 26-29, and finally Key West – November 6-11.
Beginning with Shushwap they will have a second 41 with 1350’s and that boat will be campaigned to the reaming events with both 41’s being at some of them. The guys are pulling out all the stops to bring these great boats to Powerboating events around the country. They may not make all of them but they’re going to try and if it doesn’t work out you know it was because something great and important kept them burning the midnight oil at the shop in California.
Regardless of what is sold and in production I know the entire crew will make it back to South Florida in early November for the Florida Powerboat Clubs 2013 Key West Poker Run. The 320 Nautical Mile Round Trip Event will be the perfect place to close out what looks to be an incredible Poker Run Season for Dave’s Custom Boats.
