Nearly a year ago, we introduced you to Take Point Now, a group of six – consisting of John Pignone, Greg Raney, John Kilby, Erika Christie, Jim Kieffer and PK Ewing – are preparing to set a new world record for crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a jet ski.
As we mentioned in a previous article, the team has a great deal of history together, as they served together from 2004 to 2005, in the Al Anbar province in Iraq. Then known as Major Ewing, Staff Sergeant Kilby, Sergeant Raney, Sergeant Pignone, and Lance Corporal Dixon, the team experienced “both physical combat and mental stressors and challenges. Ten years later, the team is still together and focused on a new objective – breaking the Guinness World Record for crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a personal watercraft (PWC).”
In addition to employing the use of some very cool and custom Kool PWC Stuff cargo racks supplied by owner Chris Chamberlain, the team’s Kawasaki STX-15F and a Yamaha FZS SHO will also be equipped with a sturdy Cargo Wave PWC trailer, supplied by our friends at Cargo Wave, LLC. The full-enclosed trailer will accompany the team on their journey from DC to NY, holding tools, equipment, fluids and a whole lot of other survival gear.
