Inside SOTW Mag: All About Sweat Equity

A couple of months after breaking in their brand new 26 Savage from Adrenaline Custom Boats in Phelan, Calif., owners Josh and Cherilyn Noack of Teague Custom Marine in Valencia, Calif., took the opportunity to show off the boat at a couple of substantial events in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.—the Lake Havasu Boat Show in early April and the Desert Storm Poker Run at the end of the month.

The first 26-footer from Adrenaline to hit the water (the second out of the molds), the boat got a lot of attention, and not just because of its gorgeous red, gray and white gelcoat graphics and twin red and black Mercury Racing 300R outboard engines that matched the color scheme perfectly. The attention to detail and fit and finish—much of which was accomplished by Josh Noack and the team at TCM after taking delivery of the ready-to-be-rigged, half-capped hull and deck—were off the charts and the boat’s performance, according to Noack, was impressive for a 26-foot cat.

Impressive enough to have already put 30 hours on the new 300-hp 4.6-liter V-8 outboard engines because he’s enjoying the boat—dubbed Sweat Equity—so much.

“Our family is really enjoying the boat—the kids love it,” Josh Noack said, referring to his sons, Cru and Nixon.
