  He sent us to C&O Marine where we were told to "Ride  
  and Decide".  We did and not only do we own a Champion  
  but our son traded in his Blazer & now owns one. We  
  have urged all our friends and even strangers to visit C&O  
  for their new boat.  Not only do they sell Champions and   
  Stratos but they actually treat you like family. Craig and   
  Todd along with their family, the men that work on your  
  boats, team members or just friends that stop by to talk  
  fishing will make you want to come back. Anyone can make
