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.
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.
