America's Got Talent - and Fast Boats!

Offshore icon Bob Saccenti has recently spent time helping the NBC TV show America's Got Talent get off to a good start for it's Summer 2009 debut in Miami. New show host Nick Cannon, who is also married to Mariah Carey, got a ride in a beautiful Cigarette, with a little help from legendary throttleman John Tomlinson.

Nick got to enjoy some high-speed runs as the boat was featured in some video shots out of Government Cut. The show staff and videographers were on hand to help coordinate the filming; they were also aided by Phil Lipshultz of Lipship Cigarette, who helped ensure that the right people and equipment were on hand.

Cannon must have been taken with the experience - and who wouldn't be? Later that day he posted on Twitter "...just finished racing a speedboat in Miami. Gotta get me one of these!" Judging by the boat he got to ride in, we can see how he got hooked! Great job, guys...more opportunities like this will give our sport the special profile it deserves. Now somebody better hurry up and send Nick a business card so they can sell him a boat!

When it returns this summer, the 4th season of America's Got Talent will be hosted by Cannon and continue to be presided over by the combination of celebrity judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan and David Hasselhoff. Cited by People Magazine as one of the "Top Ten most successful young people in Hollywood," the effusive star has been getting accolades from many corners of the entertainment community. For the fourth season, the show will travel to at least nine major cities to find talent of all kinds – singers, dancers, contortionists, comedians, jugglers, magicians and everything in between.
