For the first time since buying his winning ticket P5672 on Nov. 4 during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the TACO Marine Project Boat winner Roger LeFranc visited his soon-to-be boat!
Holding his winning ticket P5672, TACO Marine Project Boat winner Roger LeFranc stopped by the Ship Shape TV workshop Nov. 30 to tour his new boat. Behind LeFranc are brand new Yamaha F250 twin outboard engines.
"It's gorgeous," said LeFranc Nov. 30 after touring Project Boat. "I don't have any words. It's beautiful. She's beautiful."
LeFranc, of Melbourne, Fla. visited the Ship Shape TV workshop in Indiantown, Fla., accompanied by his son Justin, brother-in-law Hank Berry of Okeechobee, Fla., nephew Dylan Berry of Okeechobee, Fla. and friend Tim Neuman of Satellite Beach, Fla.

In the coming weeks, the professionals from Ship Shape TV will be applying the finishing touches to the TACO Marine Project Boat, such as painting inside the bilge and hatches, and conducting on-the-water tests.
Pretty soon, LeFranc will be cruising into the Florida sunset aboard his new boat, which he plans to name "Justin Time," after his son. "It's got plenty of places it's going to see," said LeFranc, who is planning many fishing trips aboard Project Boat in the near future. "Sailfish season is right around the corner."
