First Job: Navajo Lake Marina (S02E14)
Nate Duckett on Ken’s Think Tank Season 2, Episode 14
“The stuff they’re doing at Navajo Dam right now . . . at the Marina . . . it’s just amazing . . . beautiful. That’s gotta be one of the best marinas in the world. As a matter of fact, I think it was picked in some marina contest as something like top 3 marinas in the United States, or Western United States or something. They put so much investment out there.”
Yeah – really cool improvements up there.
“That was my first job here . . . the summer before my junior year of high school. A buddy and I got hired by Alan Hawkinson, who was one of the owners out there.”
“He hired us for the summer, paid us $1,000 a month, and we worked the marina. It was awesome! Dealing with all the houseboats, pumping out the black water from the houseboats, running the dock, the store, the gas station, anchoring the marina as the water ebbed and flowed. That was a blast.”
“Those are experiences you don’t forget.”
