About us (Love of boating)

Love of Boating turns into business

By Trish Dougherty

By author Trish Dougherty

I'll never forget our first boat, what a piece of junk, but when Wayne my Husband and I took the kids to see it, we knew it was perfect for us. There it was, a 1978 18' Doral Tri-hull with a 65 hp. Mercury. A real fixer upper. Well, we took her home, or should I say dragged her home on this rickety old trailer and backed her into the driveway.

 

That is were it all began, our lives changed forever in an entirely new and different direction. We took on the project together, Wayne working on the motor and trailer and I the interior. In no time the project was complete. She was ready for the water. It had been a long time since my water skiing days and many family trips to the beautiful lakes of northern Ontario. This was all new to Wayne who had never experienced boating growing up or even put on a pair of water skis. What a fantastic summer.

Like all boaters by the end of that summer, we were ready for something bigger. We went to a boat auction in Barrie Ontario and purchased a 24' Sea-ray weekender. Another project for Wayne and I, this time being an inboard/ outboard with a MerCruiser out-drive. We had her ready in no time. We enjoyed her for many years.

We loved the thrill of the auction, attending, purchasing project boats, fixing them up and selling them. Wayne started to focus on the Out-drives. Buying many older boats to obtain OMC parts. With the combination of old parts and needing new parts, we became a Co Manufacturer and Distributor of GLM Marine products. We have continued to serve the marine industry with on line parts and rebuilding out-drives. We ship product as far North as Iceland and as far South as Australia.
