This past weekend Dave’s Custom Boat owners from all over North America converged on Lake Havasu for the DCB Owners Regatta. Owners came in from as far away as Oklahoma and Ohio as well as some favorite Canadians who all towed down to Havasu. A wide range of DCB’s showed up, old to new and small to big. DCB’s sales and customer service guy, Tony Chiaramonte told us there were early Mach 22’s, outboard boats, and both of the new M41’s. All kinds of DCB’s everywhere, so many in fact Tony said they ran out of room at the Nautical Inn with at least 60 boats in attendance and over 300 people.
The DCB Pontoon boat lead the group through the channel before they cruised around Lake Havasu to random card stops at speeds all less than 100 MPH. Of course everyone was wearing a Lifeline Jacket, something that I think is now just expected.
The weekend was set up for fun and camaraderie. With a Friday impromptu lunch run and excellent food and a really safe event. The crew from DCB asked for everyone to chill on the run, keep the speed to less than 100 MPH, respect each other, and have a great time. The result was a great event with great people and it showed how committed Dave’s Custom Boat is to the promotion of performance powerboating. Moreover this shows how well they demonstrate leadership as a premier boat builder. They build a great boat, commit to teach their customers the skill to drive them, show them how to use them in a fun and safe manner and then continue that support by putting on events like these to further bolster the fun and enjoyment of boat ownership. Putting on any organized event requires a ton of work and commitment that is not understood unless you have to do it. The event coordination duties went to DCB’s new executive secretary Peggi Vincent. Peggi was responsible for the bulk of the work and deserves to be commended for a job well done! Bravo Zulu to everyone at DCB!
The event was also coordinated by our friend Todd Taylor of Lake Havasu Jokers Wild Productions. Todd is also credited with all the great photos of the event.
