What do you get when you cross spinal surgery, powerboating, snowmobiling, and a love for the great outdoors of Wyoming? You get Doc Janssen of course, owner of Saratoga Hot Springs Resort and avid powerboating enthusiast. Continue reading below to find out more!
For those of you who don’t know who Dr. Michael “Doc” Janssen is, here’s a little overview. The Denver, Colo.-based spinal surgeon is a longtime performance boat enthusiast who has owned many boats from the likes of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboats, Fountain Powerboats and more, earned multiple offshore racing world titles and been inducted into the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout Bob Morgan Memorial Hall of Fame for his on-and off-water contributions to the popular Central Missouri event.
The renowned physician, who specializes in spine care and resolutions, also is one of the most generous people in an industry filled with big-hearted powerboaters. Not only does the father of two gifted children—Matt and Maddie, who have followed in their dad’s footsteps by finishing medical school—give back at events he attends across the country in Watch Your Back, his Outerlimits SV 53 V-bottom powered by twin Mercury Racing 1550/1350 engines, but each year he opens the doors to his Lake of the Ozarks home for his Scenic Circle Power Party during the popular Shootout and he invites his closest friends (and their friends) to Saratoga, Wyo., each January to take part in the Powerboaters Snowmobile Rally at the Saratoga Hot Springs Resort he owns.
