THE GOOSE
“Angry Miss Ducktin” is the team mascot. Gasse translated in English means goose it. Team owner Tor Staubo’s early days of skydiving led him to realize his diving team flew like a bunch of wild geese… sort of “not smooth.”  It became his trademark as you will see the goose and the lucky number 8 on all the motorsports equipment and apparel.

THE 48′ BOAT
Unmistakeably, this Marine Technology Inc design is one of the most recognized boats on the offshore racing circuit. Its all carbon fiber design and state-of-the-art canopy safety system showcases safety and sleek design all at once. It sits 48′ in length, powered by twin V-8 Mercury 1650 hp motors with M8 dry sump drives. This is the premier go-fast catamaran style boat in the world.
