Robert Wallerich

Once you have picked the boat of your dreams, Bob is the one who will make sure it is rigged properly and everything is to your liking.  With his mechanical background and 7 years here at Bedford in the rigging department, he knows how to customize your boat.  So after you choose the boat that best fits you, be sure to ask for Bob and he will make sure everything is just perfect!



Bryan Partak
With his many years of tournament fishing, Bryan is here to keep the newest and best fishing tackle on the shelf for both the tournament angler and weekend fisherman. Not only does he read and study up on the current tackle products, he fishes every chance he gets so you can bet he knows if it works or not. Stop in and check out the current inventory which contains all the best lures so you fisherman can spend more time catching while you are out fishing!

  Having been with Bedford Sales for 28 years, there isn't much that Karen hasn't done. She spends most of her time in the office but you may find her assisting with the parts & tackle counters or even helping out with boat sales. Just don't visit her in the office as she will most likely be buried in paperwork!

Ginny Thompson
 To help with the office overflow of work there is Ginny. Not only does she help with the paperwork but also lends a hand at both the tackle and parts counters. She is in charge of our year round & winter storage customers as well.  Ginny always has a smile on her face no matter how overworked she may be! (She was originally hired as a part-timer but works full-time and gives 100% every hour she's here) 




Last but definitely not least, there is John.  He has been a motor mechanic since 1975 and there isn't much he cannot fix (except maybe the very old engines that parts aren't available for).  With his 35+ years here at Bedford, his knowledge and expertise is much depended upon.  He not only repairs engines but is very helpful in the boat sales department as well.  Ask John a question about any part of the boat from bow to stern and he'll have the answer for you.  He is trained in BRP, Honda & Yamaha with a certified masters in Mercury.  (Rumor has it if you cut him he will bleed black)
