Remember the Mining Company?

When "" was first created more than 10 years ago they were called the Mining Company. I remember thinking that the name didn't make sense as far as memorable URLs go, but I also remember "" didn't do anything for me either.

Well, ten years later and that's all changed now that actually DID do something for me.

As of today, the Powerboating Blog on is featuring our store, BoatNameGear, as the place to shop for great father's day gifts for boaters.

Actually, their exact words were:
With Boat Name Gear - you can order polo shirts, hats, sweatshirts and even fender covers and welcome mats that are personalized with the name of the boat. What better way to honor Dad this Father's Day than with an item that can be used for years to come?

Many thanks to Ericka (yes with both a "C" and a "K") for thinking of us!
