Frank Ambrosio works with The Discovery Channel and Maritime Arresting Technologies

The Discovery Channel Canada’s science and technology program Daily Planet was in Madeira Beach this past Saturday filming our own local St. Petersburg based company Maritime Arresting Technologies http://boatstoppers.com/.  Maritime develops and manufactures a range of solutions to save lives, secure high-value locations and apprehend non-compliant vessels.  The Ambrosio Real Estate Team donated their boat for the day for filming chase scenes in the Intracoastal to subdue another boat that was trying to get away.  Frank Ambrosio was driving and Shawn Spilde was shooting a deployable line across the bow of the evasive boat bringing it to a stop by grabbing the skeg of the motor causing no damage to the vessel or occupants.  This should film in about a month and we will post the footage on our website.
