Meet Our Friendly Staff
As the co-owner and operator of both The Boat Dock, and Colman's RV, Mike stays quite busy with sales, marketing, and the many aspects of day to day operations. As with all the staff, Mike is always eager to answer any question you may have about boating, fishing, and camping. Being an avid boater and fisherman himself, it's not uncommon to find him on any one of the local lakes, especially Lake Springfield. Mike is also a self proclaimed semi-pro rain gear tester and has been declared the two-time, tri-county backlash pickin' champion. In spite of this seemingly never ending list of talents, Mike manages to stay grounded enough to ensure that the customers always come first.
After nearly 18 years, Terry still shares in the day to day responsibilities of co-ownership of The Boat Dock and most recently the acquisition of Colman's RV with his partner Mike Miles. When time off does present itself, you will find Terry either enjoying boating and or fishing on his home waters of Lake Petersburg, or testing his patience on the local links. Terry and Mike like the rest of the staff look forward to serving their customers to the best of their ability.

Kevin has proven to be a real asset, and is committed to customer service.
"What's for lunch" Reynolds started with The Boat Dock in spring of 2008. In addition to proving his abilities as a top notch sales associate, Bill also enjoys the outdoors. He and his prize winning hunting dog Tucker spend a great deal of time duck hunting in the off season. Between that and motorcycle riding Bill keeps pretty busy. Like any good sales person Bill does a very good job of asking the right question to best determine what will fit your needs. This is why Bill is now our sales manager.
Mike is an excellent addition to Colman's RV as our Service Manager and brings with him a wealth of management knowledge. Mike is also very technologically savvy and has a strong mechanical background. His first priority is making sure our service team is reaching customer's expectations. Furthermore, Mike has a history of managing successful businesses in different markets. When Mike is on his own time, he enjoys his family and making the best out of life. We are certainly happy to have him join our family and look forward to the success he will bring to our company.
Sue joined The Boat Dock and Colman's RV in the summer of 2008 and started as receptionist, and has become one of the most versatile employees in the company. From personal assistant to the owners, to sales, to new camper check-ins and most recently finance and insurance business manager.. Shy of turning a wrench, we're not sure there is anything she can't do. Sue is always looking for things to keep her busy. Her sparkling personality and work ethic has made her a home here for as long as she is willing.

Another one of the many employees that have started in the detail department and worked their way up through the ranks. Adam started in 2003 and has become one of the top sales producers for the company. Though his title is salesperson, like most of us in this organization he wears a number of hats besides sales. In the off-season Adam helps a great deal in service with storage, shrinkwrap, and detailing. Adam also is an avid outdoorsman in every sense of the word, loves boating, fishing, and camping. You can also find him competing on the local tournament trail in his own Nitro boat. Adam is second to none in making sure his customers are satisfied in all aspects of their buying experience.

Scott has served our company and customers with smiles for many years! But he is not just a salesman; he is an all around guy here at the store. We all enjoy Scott’s jokes and his enthusiasm when it comes to making all the customers happy when they enter and leave the store. His knowledge of campers and boats is enough to make anyone feel comfortable once talking to him. When Scott is not at the store making people laugh, he would most likely be found on a lake fishing, in the woods hunting, or simply just at home with his family! Scott is respected by all of us here at the store and his dedication to work and his family proves he has focus on what matters in life! Thank you Scott, for your hard work and commitment to us and our customers.

Earl has been a technician in the recreational industry since 2001 and has been with us since 2005. He is one of those guys who "knows how to get the job done." Whenever we cannot find an easy way to fix something, we bring Greg in. His ideas and fabrication skills have helped many a customer out of a pinch. Greg spends the majority of his time focusing on the campers and RV's but is always willing to help wherever he can. Greg is an avid Harley rider and takes full advantage of our VIP motorcycle parking in the summer. Come deer season though, off go the chaps and on go the cammo as Greg is also an avid outdoorsman.

What a wonderful asset to our company and a huge asset to our customers. We first got to know Curt many years ago while his family became valued customers here. When it was time for Curt to make career decisions he decided he wanted to make this his career, and we could not be happier. We are looking forward to Curt completing his training and technician apprenticeship here and becoming certified very soon. Curt is a family man and is married with children of his own, who knows if we get to know them like we did him maybe the next generation of Colman's and Boat Dock staff is closer than you think! We could only be so lucky!
Greg has been a fixture at The Boat Dock, since early 1997. Greg has more marine experience than most dealers combined. He is dual certified in Mercury outboards and Merccruiser stern drives. Greg brings not only a wealth of knowledge, but also a ton of heart. No one cares more about getting the job done right the first time, than Greg. Like most of the staff Greg is a true outdoorsman. Hunting, fishing, and horseback riding are a huge part of Greg's spare time. The Boat Dock is blessed to have Greg as a member of the team.
