Finger Lakes Marine Service started in 1953 by Mr. Leon 'Bo' Ford and his wife Mrs. Louise C. Ford. After Mr. Ford's untimely death, his wife Ms. Ford continued with his dream of owning and operating a marina with her oldest son Mr. Barry Ford. She established in 1954 and owned and operated by Ms. Ford until 2014 with the help of her family. Now, Ms Ford has passed the torch to her eldest son Mr. Barry Ford Sr.
In 2014 - 2015, Mr. Ford took over the daily operations of the marina. Since then, Barry has overseen several projects to modernize the marina, including a point of sale gas dock, added diesel pump, dock repairs, and new board walks, and boat services such as, pump out, boat repairs, cleaning, and maintenance, engine repairs, body work, canvas repairs, and electrical repairs. Also, added amenities: wifi, new showers, bathrooms, front porch, observation deck as well as a laundry room with a small "Swap Library", and significantly expanding the service department.
We're excited about the future and ready to welcome you and your boat to the new and ever improving Marina!
