Meet the Crew below.




Keith Prust was born and raised in Waupaca WI.  At age 20, Keith left the cold Mid West with a backpack and a few dollars for the tropical islands of the Caribbean.  He soon discovered a life and career on the sea.  Working from deckhand to captain, Keith has logged over 50,000 miles traveled on vessels of various sizes and propulsions to places like Greece, Turkey, Spain, Bermuda, Caribbean, Bahamas and four trips the length of the Mississippi River and Ten-Tom Waterways.  Keith is also a Master Scuba Diver Trainer with a wide variety of underwater experiences including; teaching Bahamian students through dive master, sinking artificial wrecks, salvaging sunken vessels, Shark Feeding and Shark Awareness Instruction.  Keith returned to his home waters of the Chain O' Lakes in 2011 when he started the project of remodeling the marina.  Keith is happy to be back home on the Chain O' Lakes.



Work Boat Captain/Manager


Brook was born and raised in Waupaca WI and worked at the marina, at this location, as a summer job while growing up.  After graduation from Waupaca High, Brook went to the Navy where he worked primarily as an electrician, but also had many other jobs including fighting for our country.  After the military, Brook decided to challenge himself to one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, underwater welding!  A wife and baby girl were factors in a career change which lead Brook to a quality control company, but that left him missing the water.  Brook found his way back to the marina, now Taylor Lake Marine, where he has been working since Spring of 2012 season.  Brook brings his wide variety of knowledge to the work boat and all aspects of the marina.
