“Scott has been the guy boatbuilders, Mercury Racing dealers and our customers have turned to for advice and propeller product knowledge,” said Steve Miller, Mercury Racing director of marketing, sales and service. “At boat shows, poker runs, dealer meetings, fishing tournaments and races, people were always looking for Scott, and he could speak with passion and intelligence about propeller performance with anyone, from offshore racers to walleye anglers.”

“We have always counted on Scott’s experience,” added Myrick Coil, a veteran racer and shop foreman at Performance Boat Center in Osage Beach, Mo. “I could just tell Scott how the boat felt on the water, and that was enough. He knew what it would take to make the boat run better and faster.”
