In order to understand the present Howard's Marine of Rockport Ltd and the integrity with which we run our business, you need to know the history behind the company. Howard Huck who founded the marina, originally worked with his father, Fred Huck and brother, Ed, in the family business that is presently known as Ed Huck Marine. After a rift that seen Howard and his family at odds, Howard went to work as chief mechanic for Gananoque Boatline and before that at Jackson's Engineering in Kingston. Upon the death of his father, Fred in 1952, Howard returned to Rockport to set up his own marina, Howard's Marine, located next to his brother Ed's marina. With the ever present assistance of his wife, Marion, they worked long hours and made a name for themselves with their honesty and hard work ethic. Of their three children, Arthur and Ronald became an intricate part of the marina over the years and became partners with the passing of Howard in 1983. Paul Huck, son of Arthur, worked along side his grandfather, Howard, from the time he was eight years old. His grandfather would turn over an egg crate so he would be tall enough to reach the work bench and he taught him all he knew about the workings of an engine. Paul took his mechanic's license in 1975 and became certified that same year. He has worked at the marina since, carrying on the family tradition of hard work and mechanical expertise. In 2004, Ronald decided he needed a break from the marina, and Paul and his older brother Rick, decided to purchase Ronald's shares in the marina. The dockage, where the original marina was founded, became separate from the service, located on the 1000 Island Parkway, and Ronald created a sister company with his brother Arthur, called Rockport Marina. Although the ownership was separate, the family work closely with each other to create dockage and service for our customers. In 2008, Arthur passed away after a courageous battle with cancer and his portion of the marina was passed to his wife, Barbara, who is now the President of the company. Just recently Rick decide to sell a portion of his shares and Paul bought the majority of them but his son Jordan, who also has his own welding business, JPH Welding, also purchased a small percentage, so the legacy will continue. As in everything in life, things change and in the spring of 2013, Howard's Marine bought out Ron's portion of Rockport Marina and the rental property, now known as The Rockport Retreat, that was also part of the dockage of Rockport Marina. We continue to provide the same great service as always and contiue to improve and upgrade an already great place to park your boat. Howard's Marine has always maintained a great reputation throughout the 1000 Islands and beyond with their fairness and good business standards. "We treat you the way we want to be treated!
