“I am always able to call upon my mentor at the SBA Development Center to assist in keeping my business on track.”

A native of San Angelo, Mack Fox has extensive knowledge of the operational challenges and recreational opportunities on Lake Nasworthy. Mack is the owner/operator of The TULE PRINCESS Steamboat Co. since June 2014. Currently, he is the only State of Texas “Party Barge” Operator’s (Captain’s) License holder operating a licensed and inspected livery vessel on Lake Nasworthy.

As a visionary, Mack knows that San Angelo market is in need of more water friendly, non-motorized, equipment to offer to visitors of the lake, therefore he worked closely with adviser Havins to develop a business plan to put his idea together. Mack was able to obtain funds to purchase equipment and offer the Lake Nasworthy visitors more options for water entertainment.

Mack and adviser Havins continue to work together in the expansion of the business.
