Welcome, I'm Simon Kromer and at 20 years old I founded Top Dock Pro (2019).

How I got started?

 

During the summer after my junior year of high school, I started my new job working under a subcontractor for a boat dealer in Huron, OH. Sounds pretty boring right? But during my short time working there (3 months) I was able to gain all sorts of valuable knowledge in the industry. I was able to get hands-on experience washing, detailing, and polishing boats. I enjoyed what I was doing, including the crew I worked with, but it felt like most of the time I was just there to collect a paycheck. During the time high school football was more important to me.

 

Shortly after I started working in the industry, I realized what a great opportunity the boating industry could offer me. The boat owners I had encountered were super friendly, they always seemed happy, and I valued the opportunity to work on Lake Erie. It’s much harder to dislike your job when you have an amazing view of the lake! In fact, my favorite view was washing boats at Son Rise Marina with Cedar Point displayed in the background.

 

I wasn’t appreciative during the time, but looking back I should have been present with every moment. Once the summer came to an end and I started my senior year of high school, I hadn’t revisited the boating world again until 2019. That’s three whole years! The next two summers I got a job working in a factory in Port Clinton, OH. I hated it! The idea of getting back into the boating industry continued to persist in my mind from time to time, but I never had the vision of actually getting started until the fall of 2018, during my first year at The Ohio State University.

 

 

Why I started the company?

 

At 20 years old, starting up the business was challenging. At the time, I had just under 3 months of boat detailing experience and zero business experience. So, you may be wondering why I started the company. I knew I had to start Top Dock Pro when I truly realized how many boat owners were being unserved or underserved! And I was exactly right. In our first year alone, we were able to serve dozens of boat owners and give them the results they desired. Nothing is more delightful than seeing our customers thrilled with our services. Currently, our company strives towards becoming the best boat service company in South Florida.

Now, in 2021, moving towards my third year in business, I live, breathe, and dream boat detailing. I know this is my true purpose and passion. So much, I would rather be working on a boat at the moment of me writing. I appreciate your time reading this page, my business means the world to me. On November 1st 2021, as we transition from Northeast Ohio to Cape Coral Florida, please be patient and understanding.
