SWIMMING WITH THE…: Jonathan Boos has an unusual way of trying to raise money. The designer and owner of Würkin Stiffs, a Sarasota, Fla.-based men’s accessories firm, is appearing in season two of the ABC reality series “Shark Tank.” Boos, whose claim to fame is the creation of magnetic collar stays, appeared before business tycoons including Daymond John of FUBU, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, real estate executive Barbara Corcoran and others to try to lure them to invest in his company. “My biggest challenge has been working capital,” Boos said. “So I decided to turn to ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ for their expertise and the capital investment necessary for expansion.” The show premiered Friday. Boos will appear in a second episode, scheduled to air on April 22.
