Creative Marketing

The tough economy and rising fuel prices has at least two groups taking a proactive stance to insure that these factors don’t stand in the way of their operations. A couple weeks ago RIBCRAFT, a Marblehead, MA based RIB manufacturer, announced that they were hosting a Free Gas Promotion, where they would provide a $1,000 gas card for customers who purchase any new RIBCRAFT rigid inflatable boat (RIB) 19' and greater between May 15th and June 30th. On the event side, the 2008 J/22 Worlds, which will be held in Rochester, NY in August, is offering a $150 gas card to any entrant that drives over 400 miles from their home base to the event, and a $300 card for teams driving over 800 miles. While the large J/22 fleet in Annapolis, MD might be out luck (384 miles away per Google Maps), this might be just the push that the Gulf Coast contingent needs to drive.
