Professional Bio - Jay Ewing / Owner D&S Boats
Establishing a 22 year career in the Marine Industry has allowed me to work as a Technician, a Supervisor and an Instructor. Among those specialties I have expertise in associated products, such as, (electronics, audio, fishing systems, water sports accessories, and structural fiberglass repair). I have established a unique ability to analyze, troubleshoot and produce efficient results while maintaining the highest standards. Being a certified technician with Volvo, Mercury and Yamaha, I have achieved the highest certifications through strong commitment to excellence, accomplishment and attainment of desired goals.
This has allowed me to return to the original company I started with 22 years ago and purchase the company. My purpose is to bring life and fun back to the marine industry in my regional area.
