With the purchase of a Seakeeper Gyro Stabilizer, Seakeeper will pay the entry fee for either of two of the largest big-game fishing competitions in the country: the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament and Pirate's Cove Billfish Tournament.

As an added bonus, Seakeeper will provide the owner with a Visa gift card good for fuel, tackle or libations, the company said.

The 53rd Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament is being held June 10-18 in Morehead City, N.C. When an angler purchases a Seakeeper Gyro before June 1, Seakeeper will pay the $4,000 Level I, CSI Gamefish Level V and Gamefish Level VI entry fees and hand over a $3,000 Visa gift card, for a total value of $7,000.

For the 28th annual Pirate's Cove Billfish Tournament, set for Aug. 15-19 in Wanchese, N.C., Seakeeper will pay the C1 base entry fee with the purchase of a gyro by Aug. 1. This is a $4,850 value, plus the $3,000 Visa gift card, for a total of $7,850.

Seakeeper will host free demonstrations at both tournaments on its 43-foot Viking Sportfish, which experiences as much as an 80 percent roll reduction from a Seakeeper M7000A gyro, the company said. Other major sportfish brands that have installed Seakeeper units include Maritimo, Silverton, Mikelson, Riviera, Garlington, F&S and Richie Howell.
