Charlotte Stop #2: Meet Daniel Gottshall
Meeting and interviewing Dan was the epitome of how this project was set up. Get ourselves out there and see who we meet.
While we were across the street talking with another interviewee, they suggested we go see the boat guys. Of course we’ll go see the boat guys! You could tell that all the people we met at the shop were guys who grew up on the water and really knew their stuff.
Meet Daniel Gottshall, a technician at Charlotte Ski Boats. His passion is working on high performance watercraft, more specifically wakeboards and skiboats. Upon inspection of our flashlight he noticed the dual beam feature that enables him to shine some serious light on any dark hidden corner as well as tone it down for closer work. As he was poking around the engine on a boat that had just come out of storage, he noticed a previously overlooked oil leak! He gave credit to the flashlight and became a true believer. We could not have been happier.
Thank you Daniel and Charlotte Ski Boats. You guys are hardworking pros!
You can tell Daniel enjoys his work.
Daniel putting our indestructible flashlight to the test.
Today he gets to test out a newly repaired boat on the water. That seems like a fun part of the job.
Tough hands, tough light.
Daniel talking about his trade.
Daniel and Nick. I’ll bet this boat is one wild ride.
Testing the brightness of our light. Yep, it’s bright even in daylight.
Thanks again Daniel!
