TACO Marine Project Boat Completes First Water Testing

TACO Marine® Project Boat winner Roger LeFranc, along with his wife Crystal and son Justin, joined TACO Vice President of Sales & Marketing Mike Kushner and Ship Shape TV Host John Greviskis for the first in a series of Project Boat water tests at Burt Reynolds Park in Jupiter, Florida March 2.

“It was pretty amazing,” said Roger LeFranc, a Florida native from Satellite Beach who grew up fishing and boating. “I don’t know how to explain it. [It’s] very exciting.”

Check out the video below for some highlights from the day.

While water testing Project Boat, we monitored many products – evaluating performance, durability and speed in the engines, electronics, batteries and more. Although the boat wasn’t in the open ocean, Roger tested the fully-remodeled 1989 Pursuit 2650 at higher speeds. To give you an idea of how fast, check out the video below.

With the first tests concluded, we’re making some tweaks to the engines and adding weight to the bow – prepping for Project Boat’s next adventure on the high seas with Roger pushing it full throttle. 

Stay tuned for more TACO Marine Project Boat updates, including the ocean testing and when Roger officially christens the boat “Justin Time II,” in honor of his son. Once christened, Roger and Justin said they plan to enter fishing tournaments and officially compete in Project Boat as the Justin Time Fishing Team.
