Sales Specialist G.M.
Signing on with Seager Marine back in 1982. A grandfather to two spitfire grandsons. Art's knowledge and straight forward approach of boats and the marine industry is rooted deeply. Tagging along with his father at his marina, Art as a kid could be found varnishing and doing wood repairs on the classics. You could say he never knew enough to stop because he has been in the business ever since. A fixture on the City Pier for 44 years now. A former member of the Strike O Lightning tournament fishing team, Arts interest and knowledge spreads far beyond the ins and outs of boats. Ask him what rig to use to catch what fish or even which surfer he likes best. He can get you set up right. Just don't ask him for his favorite fishin' hole- there are somethings he keeps to himself.

Following in the Reynolds family tradition Preston was given the helm to his first boat at the age of 7. That's when he realized Lake Livin' was pretty much the only Livin'. Previously an instructor at the Inverted Wakeboard and Waterski school and a longtime familiar face around the Finger Lakes. He is even known to find a bass or a lake trout from time to time. Jack of all trades (master of none) on the water. He prides himself on having fun and enjoys passing on his passion of everything lake. You can find him still (when he is not at Seager Marine) showing his daughter, Jenna and son, Porter the ropes riding the "L" on Keuka Lake with wife Jo-Hannah at the wheel.

52 Years as owner of Seager Marine! In 1967 Marsh joined his brother Fred then a technician in purchasing the Waldorf Boat Company. You could say it was a dream of the Seager family to own and operate such an establishment. With a business plan based on customer friendly customer service Marsh has been able to build a strong and loyal customer base which he considers friends and family. More importantly - he knows them all by name and the boat they drive - sometimes even the last three or four boats they bought from him. An all-around nice guy will meet you at the door with a smile and a handshake -although- in the winter he can be found on fairways and greens in sunny Florida.
