Dee Hunsucker

Following a successful career in federal service, Dee spent six years developing training courses for the US Navy, then worked for a nonprofit focused on marine science. She wanted to continue applying the variety of skills she has accumulated to a marine-focused business. Dee grew up on the water and around boats, so Knot 10 was a natural fit. She joins a robust team that supports our yacht sales and closings.

When not working, Dee enjoys spending time with her husband Jeff on the Wye River. You’ll often find them out fishing or just enjoying a sunset cruise. Her other interests include gardening, cooking, traveling, and exploring wines.


Joshua Garner

Josh was raised on Lake Erie, growing up enjoying the blessing of water recreation and the beautiful lakefront scenery throughout the seasons.  His family has owned boats throughout the years in Ohio and Florida, allowing for fresh and saltwater fishing as well as cruising and other aquatic activities.
Josh worked for Skipperbud’s in Lakeside Marblehead, selling new, used, and brokerage boats with exclusive dealer rights to twenty-nine new lines and endless inventory opportunities with used and brokerage sales.  Josh joined Skipperbuds shortly after Marine Max became the parent company.  He’s worked multiple boat shows in Ohio and Michigan and gained excellent experience working for the largest boat dealer in the Midwest.
First in Josh’s life is being a Christ follower who enjoys church, playing in a worship band, and other faith-based activities/duties.  As a musician, he has lived in Nashville performing and writing songs throughout the years and continues to do so off and on.  Travel is another passion and has connected him with many great friends worldwide.  His girlfriend and Labrador Callie keep him in line despite his adventurous nature.  Regardless of where he roams, a staple where he hangs his hat is a nearby water source and patch of woods.  He will work hard with integrity and honesty to give you the best boat-buying experience within his power.
