Michigan Boating Hall of Fame Adds Two Members


Tom Haag, the former vice president of Colony Marine, was inducted into the Michigan Boating Industries Association (MBIA) Hall of Fame, along with Steve Remias, who previously was the president and CEO of MacRay Harbor in Harrison Township.

Haag, who passed away in March, also was chairman of the MBIA board of directors and chairman of the MBIA Boat Show Committee for nine years.

“Tom and Steve were both MBIA chairmen in the past, served on numerous committees and are more than deserving of this, MBIA’s highest honor,” says Nicki Polan, executive director of the MBIA. “Tom’s legacy lives on at Colony Marine and at MBIA, and Steve continues to advocate for MBIA, recreational boating and economic development in Michigan.”

MBIA Board Chair Patti Smith, VP of operations at Silver Spray Sports, says: “Tom always listened, reasoned, and acted in the most caring and professional ways trying to do the very best for our industry and our members. He is so very deserving of this award, and although he is not here to receive it in person, I know that his decades of contributions to the marine industry, and especially to his service to MBIA, will continue to be an inspiration to all of us for years to come.”
