When Capt. Kenny Brown decided to create an Industrial Maritime Competition that focused on SAFE WORK PRACTICES, SKILL and STAMINA, his goal was to create an entertainment event for spectators that would ultimately draw the best mariners from around the United States .
Each year the competition’s rules and judging criteria will be modified to highlight the safest, most efficient line handlers and tow builders in the industry, while encouraging best safe work practices and rewarding spirited mariners who push themselves to become the best in the industry.
Today the MARITIME THROWDOWN offers over $2500.00 cash to its winners with plans in the future to increase the prizes with the support of our sponsors.
The MARITIME THROWDOWN is a unique competition, by mixing mariner’s skills with the world of sports, the excitement generates a venue that draws the attention of the maritime industry and media.
Over the past year we had literally 10’s of thousands of people who have seen our social media post and videos.
The competition has been featured multiple times in the THE WATERSWAY JOURNAL as they are the official media sponsor for the MARITIME THROWDOWN 2017 and the upcoming MTD2018 !
