Summary

In the commercial fishing industry where vessel performance is one of, if not the, most important factors, Propspeed helps to keep their vessels running smoothly and reliably in the most challenging conditions, with increased speed and efficiency, and reduced maintenance.

About

Propspeed has contracted with a number of brand ambassadors. Five captains, each part of the Wicked Tuna fleet, will promote Propspeed products and demonstrate the benefits of using the line to keep their vessels running smoothly through the demands of their occupational endeavors.

Propspeed Brand Ambassadors now include:

  • Wicked Tuna Captain Dave Marciano – FV Hard Merchandise
  • Wicked Tuna Captain Tyler McLaughlin – FV Pinwheel
  • Wicked Tuna Captain TJ Ott – FV Hot Tuna
  • Wicked Tuna Captain Paul Hebert – FV Wicked Pissah
  • Wicked Tuna Captain Bob Cook – FV Fat Tuna

“These professional fishing captains rely on their boats for their very livelihood,” said Chris Baird, CEO, Propspeed. “We are honored that they have chosen a proven brand like Propspeed to keep their equipment running reliably in some of the most challenging conditions imaginable.”

"I am so honored to have Propspeed on my new boat, Propspeed is amazing,” said Paul Hebert. “When I hauled my boat last year for the winter, I noticed that the Propspeed had protected every inch of the surface it was covering. Putting Propspeed on my boat has saved me countless hours of work each season!" 

“Last season, I had Propspeed products applied on my wheel, rudder, underwater lights and transducer,” said Bob Cook. “Fat Tuna looks as fresh hauling out as the day she went in for the season!”

The television show Wicked Tuna follows a group of salty fishermen from the nation's oldest seaport, Gloucester, Massachusetts, as they make their living the way it has been done for centuries – rod and reel fishing, one catch at a time – all in pursuit of the bluefin tuna. The tenth season is currently airing on the National Geographic Channel and nine previous seasons are now available to stream on Disney+.
