A Generational Endeavor
(This boat was sold for $300 which was used to found Maryland Marine Manufacturing, Co.)
In the 1960’s, David F. Myskiewicz (son of Len) and Wayne E. Miskiewicz (son of Ed) joined the business full time. In the mid 70’s, the marina expanded to its current 360 slips. In the late 70’s and the early 80’s, Ed’s other two sons, Mark and Brian, joined the business full time. By the mid 1980’s these four individuals of the third generation, assumed ownership and control of the business.
Over the course of the late 80’s and early 90’s all of Wayne’s and Dave’s daughters saw duty at the marina with Christina Wolf, Wayne’s oldest daughter, remaining full time to mark the fourth generation of family to participate. Every once in a while you may find a member of the fifth generation visiting their mom, Chrissy, at work.
In 1988 Maryland Marina turned its efforts away from new boat sales to upgrading and improving its facilities and equipment. A major expansion occurred in 1992 with the opening of a restaurant called the Wild Duck Cafe which became a very popular boating destination. In 2012 A new generation of hospitality began with the re-opening of the restaurant now known as Sunset Cove.
The year 2015 marks 69 years of continuous operation under the management of four generations of the family. The family looks forward to many more years of serving the community and the boating public.
