I reckon you should do all you can to get that Casino chain to sponser you, if not them then a well known men's magazine,
either way my name will be on a RB boat

Looks great by the way, you still doing testing or have you got your set-up sorted?

Have you thought about auctioning your potential advertising space via ebay or something along those lines?

If you did so and then contacted local papers / radio stations etc you might get some media coverage rauising the profile of your auction.

Just an idea - Al

I'd be tempted to loose the Name & Taz Logo, gives a cleaner look for any potential, Also get any old numer on it so it stands out a bit, Number will have to go on the front 1/3 anyway, Just a thought best of luck with the search and hope your efforts are rewarded

here's a silly idea but often the silly one's work...tow it to the local premier ship football club's player's car park's with a big sign saying footballer with a sense of adventure and a spare 20/25k needed to navigator/driver in RB08 in July...lets face it they are like magpie's when it comes to big blinngy things and what could be more blinngy than a 28 Phantom with 600hp and all for a days wage, even if you fail to get a player the national papers may be over you like a rash asking why a football player???

That isnt a bad idea actually im not sure if i could find the space to just pull up with the boat there tho, Maybe send some emails to clubs.

What made me think of football is I popped down to the Bmth grounds some weeks back regards sports events and even these players have bling cars and probably a Sunseeker sitting in the marina, and football players also like publicity and thrashing around in a high powered boat is bound to appeal to one of them, but I really do believe to stand a chance it has to be in their car park sat next to their Farrari F430 that way it will look imposing and once they have kicked the tires they may want to light the fires
