This boat was a very detailed project and it wouldn’t have come about
without the incredible efforts of many people. I’d like
to thank each and every one for all their hard efforts and
patience, I for one appreciate it and feel it was well worth
Marine and Michelle Kilburn, Manager, Tournaments and Endorsements at Mercury Marine. 250 XS is one incredible motor.
Boats, especially Chubb’s
and Alice. "They build one awesome boat"
and my purchasing experience with them was truly a personal
transaction. My time spent with them was like going to a family
reunion minus the fights!
Todd DeFilipps who has been a great friend and a true genious of a boat and motor builder. He can dream it and then actually build it.
Brent Holbrook for his over 1400 miles of R&D testing and setting up in the White Knuckles boat. He and his family have been so wonderful in opening their home to me so frequently.
Todd at Hydromotive Engineering, who works with me constantly tweaking and upgrading their fantastic propellers.
Berkley/Pure Fishing who are my tackle sponsors.
Matt Newman and Irods
my new rod sponsors. Rods designed by the pros for the pros but, at a reasonable cost.
Grisham from Custom Marine & Welding, for such
an incredible job working my gear case and rigging of the
boat. The boat drives unreal and I knew he’d make it
faster than the stock case.
Bob Bourget at USA Marine who keeps the boat and motor
in top shape with his excellent service.
Zoo in Florida who actually made the graphics.
Thanks for you’re bringing the design to life.
My wife, Deborah Delany for all the graphic art work and
design. She inspired me to take the direction I did with the
graphics and I can’t thank her enough for that let alone
the work she did to make it a reality.
Finally, but most importantly, I’d like to
thank my son Luke,
my little buddy, who’s cause this boat mainly embodies.
I could never imagine having to struggle to communicate and
learn the way he does on a daily basis, yet he remains eager
to learn and has such a happy and loving personality. I am
marveled by his growth and how far he has come and look forward
to his hopefully some day fully over coming his disorder of
Autism. Luke you make me proud each and every day.
I Love you!
