Astronaut pays a visit to Nautique

Nautique recently had a visit from Charles "Scorch" Hobaugh, a NASA space shuttle astronaut and an avid water skier and longtime Nautique owner.

During Scorch's visit to Nautique, he attended a luncheon with president/CEO Bill Yeargin, Team Nautique skier Chris Parrish and Chris' father, Mike. Afterward, he met with the product development team, followed by a factory tour.

"It was an exciting day to have a visit from a Nautique customer like Scorch, who took the time to meet with our product development team, share his life experiences and tour our facility," Yeargin said in a statement.
