Our Crew

Henry Uihlein- Owner/Operator Uihlein's Marina ;Boat Rental and Motel

I was born into my parent's business which began in 1955. I began learning and helping in the business at the age of 7 and continued working summers throughout my college years.

My father passed in 1977 and for 5 years, I taught school and ran the Marina. Since 1982 I have devoted every  bit of my time  and energy to the improvement and growth of Uihlein's Marina and facilities.  I have a Master Captain's License, strong qualifications and extensive knowledge of marina operations.

I am proud of the direction in which Uihlein's has been heading. The staff are all extremely well qualified and a pleasure to work with. They have a respect for themselves, their job and the people they service. My heart is in the business and I believe theirs is also. Each of them strives to better themselves and continue to do so year after year.

My staff and  I want every patron to have a pleasant experience at  Uihlein's. We will do all we can to satisfy our patrons' every need.
