Michael started boating on his parents Catalina 22 sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay. A move to Southern California, in 1973, provided fun experiences on that same boat out of Marina Del Ray. “My father was a VP of marketing for a large pump company and traveled internationally weekly”. Boating was a needed retreat & provided lasting family memories from that busy lifestyle. A new addition to the family came in the form of a 16ft brown runabout in the late ‘70’s which remained with them until the early 90’s. A move to a home located on the Connecticut River, in 1980, added a racing ULDB sailboat, 30ft Sportfish, and an orange inflatable. Michael worked many summers at the two top marinas on the Connecticut River taking care of 50 plus boats including several 100 ft yachts.
A move to Florida in the mid 80’s (to Casey Key then to a home in Tampa Bay) added several more boats for inshore & offshore fishing and scuba diving experiences. As an advanced Nitrox diver, he enjoys spearfishing & fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, Keys or Dry Tortugas. He brings over 7 years of new & used boat sales experience to the Fishtale family & customers. “ Fish Tale Boats & the beautiful Ft. Myers area could not be a better fit for me”
