T-H Marine Supplies acquired Tonka Customs LLC, which manufactured the Wave Tamer bow sonar mounts.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Minnesota-based Tonka Customs was founded by Josh Douglas and Andy Young.

"We are excited about our acquisition of the assets of Tonka Customs to grow our presence in boat electronic mounts,” T-H Marine president Jeff Huntley said in a statement.

“Over the past couple years, several of our pro staff told us about a bow sonar mount that they considered awesome. It was extremely strong, mounted to the deck in sturdy manner and was available in a variety of colors. After hearing about it over and over, we checked it out, and they were right.”

Douglas and Young will continue to promote the product and Alabama-based T-H Marine’s other products.

“The fact we're able to turn our mount over to a industry powerhouse like T-H Marine and still get the opportunity to promote our product, as well as all the other great boating accessories in the T-H Marine lineup, is an opportunity we couldn't allow to slide by,” Douglas said.

“Andy and I worked very hard to earn the reputation that our bridge mount has built and are excited to pass it off to such a reputable company, who’ll surely take it to the next level. I fish a lot of big water while tournament fishing and guiding and know firsthand how efficiently the Wave Tamer protects my Lowrance units in the harshest conditions imaginable and allows me to be able to simply concentrate on that next bite.”
