President, Founder – Hydrofin
Jason is founder of Hydrofin. He’s a lifetime boater passionate about leveraging technology to create smarter ways to boating. He came up with the idea for Hydrofin on an offshore fishing trip where speed, fuel burn, and passenger comfort dictated the amount of time he and his friends could spend on the water.
He initially sought out a solution for offshore fishing boats but quickly realized a greater need with pontoon boats since the number one complaint of owners is their slow speed. Since then, Jason has been the driving force dedicated to the development and release of Hydrofin.
