R.I. yard owner receives ABBRA’s President’s Award

Posted on Written by Michael LaBella

The American Boat Builders & Repairers Association has named William “Bill” Munger, founder/owner of Conanicut Marine Services in Jamestown, R.I., the 2013 recipient of the Dennis Snow President’s Award.

Presented last week at the Boatyard Business Conference Awards Dinner & 70th Anniversary Celebration in Fort Lauderdale Beach, the award is for significant and lasting contributions to the boatyard and marine service/repair industry.

Munger joins a distinguished group of industry leaders who have received the honor.

“All of us who know Bill recognize him as a contributor to the marine industry, his community, and a genuine supporter to all those who have worked with him,” ABBRA president Pam Lendzion said in her presentation remarks. “Without reservation, I can say that Bill Munger, and his wife May, have worked tirelessly to create and operate a family business that provides top-quality service and repair work. In their personal and work lives they operate with honesty and integrity and do not hesitate to offer their support to others in the industry.”

Munger said he shared the honor with his wife.

“This is a great honor for me, and I share it with May, whose support, partnership and friendship has meant the world to me,” Munger said, adding, “I knew Dennis Snow, and to be recognized with the President’s Award by ABBRA really means a lot to me. All I’ve done has been out of a love and passion for this business and for boating, and if I’ve made a difference over the years I’m happy about that.”

    Our industry and the boating public have benefited greatly by Bill & May’s contributions. On a personal level Bill has always made himself to answer my questions, share his experiences and has done so with profound insights. We are blessed to have such stellar folks in our industry. This award could not go to a more deserving team than Bill and May. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
