Little Known Facts about Pirates Cove:
Captain Paul White, current owner of Pirates Cove Marina, grew up in a boating family and started working at the marina when he was just 13 years old. He was always taking things apart (and putting them back together !!) to see what made them “run” and was a constant shadow behind the marina’s mechanic, OJ Colbert. Paul admired OJ’s intelligence and passion for all things marine, and was driven by a compelling desire to acquire the knowledge and expertise to become a master marine mechanic. Over the years, he trained in fiberglass repair and construction, marine wiring and electrical, gas and diesel fuel and injection processes, and attained a plethora of marine related certifications.
Gaining the vast knowledge necessary to fulfill his dream of owning a marina., proved both challenging and rewarding. He has had extensive experience with Crusader, Mercruiser, Volvo, Cummins, Caterpillar, Detroit, OMC engines; Onan, Kohler, and Westerbeke generators, has judged competitions in Marine engine repair, and echoing his mentor, trained many excellent mechanics.
Paul has successfully restored antique boats for competition and has a vast knowledge of classic and antique watercraft, maintaining a treasure trove of marine engine parts and hardware. Looking for parts and pieces for a restoration? Check with Captain Paul!
In 1977, Paul purchased his love and passion and today Pirates Cove Marina is a reflection of his life; a haven for boaters, an oasis of calm in a fast-paced world of stress, and a ‘sandbox’ for boaters and their toys.
