Jim Maddox ~ 2016
I’m proud of “ surviving the years on the bridge while making long term friendships with other boating families with similar interests.”
Joined the Tollycraft Boating Club: 2005
Spouse/Partner: Marilyn Maddox
Occupation: Retired, I was an industrial equipment sales person
What he’s doing today: We have two children and three grandchildren, ages 11, 3 and 4 months. I like boating of course as well as boat repair and restoration. In addition I enjoy running and downhill skiing.
His favourite Tollycraft Boating Club memory: Every year at Roche Harbor with the crazy costumes and non stop fun. Does anyone remember when I came dressed as Pharaoh and Marilyn was Queen Cleopatra?
He joined the Tollycraft Boating Club Bridge because: At one point I wanted to raise the fun level another notch and see if we could help the Club grow and expand.
What he’s most proud of during his time as the Tollyclub commodore: Surviving the years on the bridge while making long term friendships with other boating families with similar interests.
Challenges he and his bridge overcame while he was commodore: Just the usual logistical issues but the entire bridge was patient, fun loving and dedicated to improving the Club and meeting our members needs.
His Rendezvous theme and its inspiration: Marilyn’s theme was “Music through the Ages” and we were inspired by the music we enjoyed growing up,
His Tollys: We have had the privilege of owning four different Tollycraft boats in the last 15 years and have loved every one of them, none more than our current 37 (Tranquility, 1985 Tolly 37). The other Tollys include Macey Lyn (1975 Tolly 26) and Tranquility (1989 Tolly 34 Sports Sedan)
