As part of their year–end recap with different throttlemen, drivers, and more, Speed On The Water recently featured a mini–interview with John Tomlinson, reviewing one of his ‘Highs’ of 2012. Check out the full article here, or view the excerpt below.
For John Tomlinson—one of the Ts behind Miami’s highly regarded marine center and custom rigging shop TNT Custom Marine (Mike Thomas is his partner)—2012 was pretty memorable. Tomlinson can look back on 2012 as the year he smashed the Round Long Island record by 55 minutes.
My high for the year? Setting the Round Long Island record in August with Stuart Hayim was pretty cool. (Read the story here.) We did some endurance-calculated test runs before the boat left our shop for New York to make sure everything would work. Thanks to perfect weather and the powerful Mercury Racing 1350 engines behind the capable 42-foot MTI, we pulled it off on our first attempt without any issues.
