MURFREESBORO, TENN. (April 16, 2008) Capitalizing on the enormous popularity of team tournaments across the country, Stratos Boats recently announced the new 2X Double Your Winnings contingency program. Designed to reward Stratos owners with serious cash, the program will run from April 15 to December 31, 2008 and will double first-place tournament winnings from any qualified tournament, up to $10,000.

With no signup fee or membership dues to pay, the Stratos 2X Double Your Winnings program is available to owners of any 2007-2009 model Stratos boat and makes no restrictions on individual models or motor pairings. In fact, with the Stratos Boats 2X Double Your Winnings program, anglers simply fill out an affidavit within 30 days of a first-place finish in a qualified tournament and Stratos Boats will double the winnings by matching the first place prize, no matter how many qualified tournaments an angler might win in a year.
