Speed On The Water just released an exclusive video of our very own, Johnny Tomlinson! Continue reading to find out more about Johnny’s early career and how he was able to build the famed TNT Custom Marine.
With today’s release of “In The Lead with Johnny Tomlinson of TNT Custom Marine,” we have produced nine episodes in the documentary-style video series, which launched in 2021, with our Scrapyard Media colleagues Brad DiMaggio. But none is nearer and dearer to our hearts than the Tomlinson segment because speedonthewater.com co-publisher Jason Johnson and I worked with him on the Powerboat magazine test team for more than 10 years.
Among the best-known figures in the high-performance powerboating world, TNT Custom Marine’s John Tomlinson is the subject of the latest Speed On The Water “In The Lead” video powered by Mercury Racing with support from Bluave Marine Audio, CP Performance, The Firm Realty Group, Hamilton Marine Finance, Hardin Marine and MYCO Trailers.
As alternating co-pilots, Johnson and I evaluated hundreds of high-performance boats with Tomlinson (and even more with former Powerboat magazine lead test driver Bob Teague). We literally put our lives in his capable hands. So as people who often find themselves in potentially dangerous situations do, we got close.
