Don has been boating for most of his life. He enjoys spending every summer on Long Beach Island boating, skiing, surfing,  fishing and crabbing.  His love of the water kept him close to it, and after graduating from Stockton College he found his way into the marine industry as a marine mechanic where he learned he could pursue a career doing what he has a passion for.  

Transition into service manager allowed him to bring together his vast knowledge of boating and customer service along with keeping him immersed in the marine environment where he belongs.  A licensed captain for 15 years he still enjoys any time spent on the water with family and friends. Along with the opportunity to teach new boaters how to enjoy the water possibly for the first time while making the service of their boats as effortless as possible.
