Meet the IMC Crew

Islands Marine Center image Ron and Jennifer Meng started Islands Marine Center in 1972. It is still under the same ownership today. In 2004, they teamed with Jim Lindel and started their own boat line, the Ocean Sport Roamer. Today, both Islands Marine Center and Ocean Sports Boats are flourishing businesses.
We are dealers for Pursuit boats, the Pursuit line of boats come from Florida and are built by S2 Yachts.

Islands Marine Center image Lesley Combs, IMC's Sales Assistant, began her boating life in 1988, when she and her husband purchased a sailboat. In 1989 they sailed from Seward Alaska to Washington (and had an incredible 2 1/2 months). They were live-aboards for 5 years, 3 of which were on Lopez at Islands Marine Center. They have a daughter Kate and spend all their free time with her and her horse Poppy. They love working on Dressage.

Islands Marine Center image Lynn moved here in 1989 after she and her husband traded in their old boat for a new one from IMC. "Most of our boating has been fishing, and there's nothing better that getting off work, walking down the dock, firing up the motor and just getting out there for a couple hours before going home. I count my life pretty lucky to have combined a life-long bookkeeping career with one of my favoite hobbies." Ask for Lynn about your account, bills we pay, office policies, store and office employment opportunities and benefits.

Diana Cochran (right) has lived on Lopez for many years and worked for IMC most of them. She and her husband Larry have two kids-Sara & Tyler. She enjoys her horses and is involved in 4-H. If you have any questions about your Marina bill talk with her.
