Inside SOTW Mag: Product Spotlight—Bling With A Purpose

keepcollectivejewelry

Celebrate your boat, event, brand and more with jewelry from KEEP Collective designer Nikki Sorenson, a friendly face and fellow boater from Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks.

One of the nicest people you’ll ever meet from Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks (and that’s saying a lot because people from there are quite pleasant), Nikki Sorenson knows just one speed—wide open. That’s one reason she’s drawn to performance boats. It’s another reason she has a successful local concierge business as well as a fun, flourishing KEEP Collective jewelry rep business that brings in extra money, and, better yet, combines her fashion sense with her passion for go-fast boats.

Sorenson definitely has established a cool niche of keepsakes that are both unique and personal—as you can see by the variety of images included on the right. The best part is that she’s easy to reach via her KEEP Collective link below or her Facebook page, and she’ll work with you to design the perfect bracelet for you,
a friend or a significant other.

Inside SOTW Mag: Brand Appeal

If there’s one thing that’s remained true about performance boating from the early days is that it’s as much about the thrill as it is about the lifestyle. Looking good and hopefully feeling good should come with the ownership of such hardware. It’s the reason Cigarette Racing Team has such luster. The same reason applies to brands like Skater Powerboats, Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats, MTI, DCB Performance Boats and more.

Inside SOTW Mag: Mystic C4400 ‘Habitual’ Profile

For Chad and Heather Collier of Tennessee, everything about their new Mystic C4400 catamaran proved more than worth the wait. Photo by Pete Boden/Shoot 2 Thrill Pix.

Had it not been for his persuasive wife, Heather, Tennessee’s Chad Collier likely would have joined his own Old Hickory Fun Run, Raft-Up and Pub Crawl this summer in a Mystic Powerboats M4200 luxury center console with 1,600 hp worth of outboard engines rather than stealing the show in a new low-profile Mystic C4400 catamaran powered by 2,700-hp worth of Mercury Racing quad overhead cam turbocharged stern drive power. Last March, the Colliers, who formerly owned a Mystic C5000 cat, headed to Florida for the Palm Beach International Boat Show to hang out with Mystic principal John Cosker and Scott Sjogren of Mystic Powerboat Sales and do a little boating, maybe even buy a boat.

But what Chad Collier had in mind was completely different from what Heather Collier had in mind.

“She was the one who wanted cat,” said Chad. “I would have bought Win Farnsworth’s 42-foot Mystic center console—they had it on display in Palm Beach—on the spot. That’s the truth.”

Inside SOTW Mag: Rollin’ on the River

For the river rats who lay claim to both the New York and Canadian sides of the St. Lawrence River, the dedicated performance boaters from the area who knew what they wanted out of another event and the townsfolk who greeted the poker run participants with open arms, the sold-out inaugural 1000 Islands Charity Poker Run in Clayton, N.Y., was an all-out success.
