At this point the cat is out of the bag and the show has begun to air so we are able to talk a little about it. The show in question is Fox TVs “American Grit” hosted by WWE Superstar John Cena and an elite group of military heros as mentors to competing teams. Watch as 16 contestants push beyond their limits for prize money worth up to a million dollars. – See episode 1
IBC was there consulting with producers before filming to help with boat type selection and evolution planning so contestants could have a good and challenging experience similar to the military programs our troops use today.
Much thought went into selecting the right boat at the right size and weight for the evolutions. In the end the Special Forces Zodiac FC470 was scrubbed and the Bombard Typhoon 310ALU was put forward as the best fit for the cadre in the evolutions. Because it’s easy to set up and light to carry all while being rated for 4 adults and up to a 10hp outboard the Bombard Typhoon 310 ALU checks all the boxes for “American Grit”.
The Bombard Typhoon is available in sizes up to 15’5″ with a 40hp rating and is tough enough for the “American Grit” cadre while being easy to setup and fun for the whole family. Don’t be fooled by internet copy cats the Bombard Typhoon line is a Zodiac brand and has all of 110 years experience with inflatable boat design and materials, your no name knock off internet special is but a cheap imitation and you’ll get what you pay for.
Speaking of teams, IBC added additional handles forward for John Cena’s cadre to allow everyone to team carry the Bombard Typhoon thru the terrain and obstacles laid out for the evolution. IBC knows about teamwork, we are a small shop that tackles big impossible missions for operators around the world daily.
IBC prides it’s self on our own individual times “on the pond” that mesh together into one of the most knowledgeable inflatable boat cadres on the planet. From Navy deep sea evolutions to off shore racing, leisure cruising, and sailing our guys have done it all just for the fun of it.
Watch “American Grit” Thursdays on Fox and get into the game, and if you are looking for a great boat for a great price give our team a call and join the evolution!
