OZONA - When Tony Marino and his wife Jayne drove past Pat’s Landing on Shore Drive back in 1999, Tony knew immediately he wanted it.

After a number of years in the corporate world with Time Warner Cable, Marino was looking for a place to store his boat but the allure of Pat’s Landing was too much to ignore. A few months later, he and his wife purchased the marina and renamed it Marino’s Marina.

Now, more than 15 years later, it is a well-oiled small business that has become a lifestyle for Marino and his wife.

But it wasn’t always that way.
