Terry Taylor
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.
Mike Miles
As the co-owner and operator of both The Boat Dock, and Colman’s Campers, 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.

Greg K.
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.
Joe A.
Second in seniority only to Greg, Joe has developed into an exceptional technician and an all around great employee. Joe started as a detailer and in a very short time, was prepping and rigging new boats for delivery. Now Joe is a dual certified Mercury Marine technician in Mercury outboards and Mercruiser stern drives, and a good one at that. Joe has grown a great deal with the company in every way but size. Joe is as committed to staying healthy and fit, as he is to making sure our customers engines get fixed right the first time. In his spare time Joe enjoys fishing, golfing, and is an excellent pool player.
Kevin
Not unlike many of The Boat Dock employees, he started out in the detail department. Kevin joined the team in 2003, and has grown through the ranks. Most recently Kevin has taken over as Sales Coordinator overseeing all aspects of sales for both The Boat Dock and Colman’s Campers. Like most of the members of the team Kevin is an outdoorsman and an athlete. Kevin enjoys camping, fishing, softball and almost any outdoor activity. Kevin has proven to be a real asset, and is committed to customer service.
Adam W.
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. Adam makes sure the entire pre-owned product keeps current on the Internet, which at times is overwhelming. 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.
Jim M.
Jim was willing to come out of retirement from his state career, and start a part time career with The Boat Dock and Colman’s campers in sales. With Jim’s love for boating and camping, and his exceptional people skills he’s a perfect fit for the job. Since 2008 Jim has helped hundreds of new boaters and campers learn all the ins and outs of the boating and camping lifestyle.
Bill
“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.
Sue
Sue joined The Boat Dock and Colman’s Campers in the summer of 2009 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.
Adam B.
He joined our team in 2006, coming from an auto parts background. Adam has had no trouble adapting to his position oversees parts and service with his counterparts, George and David. Adam has also been a vital key to the growth and success of The Boat Dock’s parts and service departments. Like all of our staff, Adam is always eager to assist in any way he can. Adam is also an outdoorsman and a racing enthusiast.
Mark B.
Mark, Adam B.’s brother, is like many of our other staff in that he started in the detail department and worked his way up to certified Mercury Marine technician We are very proud of the Beatty boys and their accomplishments here. We have no doubt with his persistence and commitment, it’s just a matter of time before he is also dual certified in Mercury outboards and Mercruiser stern drives. Mark also is a boater and outdoorsman and likes playing as hard as he works.
Jonathan B.
You guessed it, another Beatty brother. It seems they have done something right in raising the boys in that household. Jonathan joined us part time in the spring of 2009 and decided to come on board full time in the fall of 2010.  Not unlike the rest of his brothers, he is a hard worker with a great attitude. We expect great things out of Jonathan as he joins our apprentice technician program. Like his brothers Jonathan enjoys the outdoors and four wheeling. But unlike the rest of his brothers, Jonathan likes to jump out of perfectly good airplanes.

Greg (Earl)
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. We are happy to have him on board.
Jeanette
Jeanette brings a wealth of accounting, bookkeeping and boat industry experience to The Boat Dock. She hails from a small town near Litchfield and commutes daily. It’s no surprise that with this traveling bone, she loves to travel, including recently taking a family trip to Europe which included her granddaughter. Jeanette has also become our resident “Bird Lady” as she loves birds, keeping some as pets and also raising chickens at the family “farm.” We are very happy to have her here with us.
David
David is a welcome addition to The Boat Dock and brings with him a wealth of parts knowledge. David is also very technologically savvy and has a strong mechanical background. His first priority is making sure that our customers get what they need when they need it. A requirement for being part of The Boat Dock team is a good sense of humor, and with that being said, he certainly fits in. Family is a strong part of our foundation and is a large part of David’s life as well. He is a devoted family man and enjoys the outdoors and boating. We are very proud to have him with us.
  Curt
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!
  Jason
Jason comes to us with a wealth of parts knowledge and a huge customer service commitment.  When someone enjoys the place they work it shows through in their commitment to the customer, Jason enjoys being here almost as much as we enjoy having him. Although he currently hails from Auburn he is a southern boy (Hillsboro-Raymond) and them “southern boys sure know how to get things done. Jason enjoys restoring classic cars and regularly attends car shows in his spare time. We are happy to have him as part of the family. Stop in and talk with him about anything parts or service related and you will be glad you did!
  Scott
We always say that family is a big part of The Boat Dock and we certainly mean it and the Miles’ and the Beatty’s are the proof. Scott is Mike’s brother and an extremely valuable asset to anyone thinking about a new or used camper or boat. Being an avid outdoorsman himself Scott can help you navigate the rough terrain of choosing the right recreational product for your family. We are lucky to have someone like him with his business background and work ethic you will not find anyone who will work harder to make your experience here a great one. If you want to talk turkey hunting in Missouri, fishing the lakes of the Midwest, or camping all points in between Scott is your man. When he is not hard at work here or working in the real estate business helping people buy and sell farms he is spending time with his family.
