World champion, Gary Ballough will be running a 32-foot catamaran in the 2019 offshore racing season. The boat will be rigged by TNT Custom Marine in the coming weeks to prepare for the season. Read more below about how TNT is getting Ballough prepared for the races!
Once the boat arrives in Jacksonville, it will be trailered to TNT Custom Marine in Miami for rigging. Ballough said that he’s already been bringing needed parts to the facility so that when the boat gets there TNT’s Mike Thomas and company won’t need to wait for anything to get started. That includes everything from seat brackets to backing plates for the catamaran’s Mercury Racing 300XS engines to simple fittings.
The Victory cat will be hull No. 12 that TNT has rigged for Ballough.
“With all the boats TNT has rigged for me, I have never had one rigging-related failure,” he said, then laughed. “They will let me be around for the process but will send me home when I get a little too involved.”
