Unsolicited Internet Media Exposure:
The Vote Boat is headed to Miami to make a political statement at the Republican Governor's Convention to say thank you to John McCain for his supportive concession speech that supports Barack Obama as the next President of the United States of America. The 65' vessel will be sailing in downtown Miami from Friday 14th to Monday 17th of November.
The Vote Boat has moved to Fort Lauderdale and has grown over 24 feet to become a 65' yacht. It was spotted visiting the International Boat Show by many attendees. Locals seem to support the "left side" of The Vote Boat but boat show visitors seem to support the "right side".
4 days of sailing in the Hudson and East Rivers of New York have proven that Barack Obama is way ahead in the polls at least here in the Big Apple.
Nine days and nine million impressions later, it is obvious to the crew of the Hunter 41 DS that Obama has a serious lead over McCain in Manhattan. Crowds cheered as THE VOTE BOAT tacked and jibed over 700 times this week in the Hudson and East Rivers. Camera flashes became complacent as hundreds of ferries ventured out of their way to get a closer look of the most hypnotically imaged sailboat sails in history, distracting all including tourists, fellow yachtsman, local residents, outdoor employees and office workers with a window view.
Now THE VOTE BOAT will make a second appearance in the battleground state of Florida, turning heads in the cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale during the largest boat show in the world, the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. With days to go before the most controversial election in recent history, PhotoSails.com is taking these measures to ensure that all registered voters make their voices heard and to be a part of this historical event.
The Vote Boat Photo Sailstm have been imaged and finished into a main and jib for the new 41 Hunter DS that is awaiting in NY.
