The States Organization for Boating Access (SOBA) awarded Sanford, Florida resident, Jon Fleischman, the Outstanding Service Award for his decades of innovative design and fabrication of GatorDock's pier, dock and marina systems. Jon has improved the nation’s boating community across his efficient and cost effective dock systems for public and private boat launches and marinas.
The States Organization for Boating Access (SOBA) awarded Jon Fleischman with the Outstanding Service Award Wednesday evening at the 2012 SOBA Annual Conference Award Dinner. The Outstanding Service Award is presented to an individual or an agency who has made a continuing contribution to provide improved access for boaters and anglers to our nation’s public waters. SOBA’s week-long conference was held in Mobile, Alabama and was hosted by Terry Boyd, Chief Engineer at the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The annual conference gathered industry experts from across the nation with a mission to encourage, promote and support federal and state programs that provide safe, high-quality and environmentally sound public recreational boat access to the waterways of the United States and its territories.
Since SOBA was founded in 1986, membership has expended to all 50 states and five territories and includes not only state boating officials, but also consultants, engineering firms, manufacturers, and other business persons interested in boating access. SOBA recognized Jon Fleischman as a solution-finder who has collaborated with SOBA’s many members to create custom solutions that are now standard features on boat access projects across the county. Each of Jon’s dock, pier and marina solutions has a unique purpose that is a combination of local environment, regional culture, and the client’s individual interests. Crane Materials International (CMI) and GatorDock are proud to have had Jon Fleischman as a team member for over three decades and congratulate him on this prestigious award.
