With over 150 years combined experience at Charles Mill Marina, our dedicated staff offers unmatched knowledge and experience in the marine industry. Our goal is to provide the best service and value for your boating needs.
Bob Schraedly, Owner and General Manager
With forty years experience in boating, Bob brings seasoned competence to the boating business. After operating the Clearfork Marina southwest of Mansfield for some twenty-five years, he bought the Charles Mill Marina in 1985 and then the Pleasant Hill Marina in 2004. Working not only as owner, but as the hands-on general manager, he is fully committed to the healthy functioning of the marina. On any day of the week you can find him scouting out possible problems and discovering solutions, ensuring the smooth operation of every aspect of the business. Bob’s commitment to dependable and fun boating keeps him engaged with the larger boating community too, as he actively contributes to the annual North Central Ohio Safe Boating & Fishing Festival held at Pleasant Hill in early June. If you ask Bob about the highlight of his boating year at the marina, he’ll tell you hands down that it’s the fireworks show in July. Not to be missed.
Mark, Sales and Marketing Director
Mark joins us with over a decade of experience in the marine industry. He had previously worked with John Yaussy at Apple Valley Marina for nearly 8 years. He has worked in almost every department including general labor, parts and service, and sales.
After completing his Bachelors of Business Administration degree in 2006, Mark moved to Columbus and worked for The Ohio State University Medical Center, but eventually he made his way back to what he enjoys most, BOATING!
John brings over 30 years of experience in the boating industry to our parts and service department. He began in the early 1980’s at Clearfork Marina near Lexington, Ohio, working in boat sales, service, parts and operations. John managed Apple Valley Marina in Howard, Ohio, for over a decade.
John now helps oversee day-to-day operations at Charles Mill Marina, working in the parts department and coordinating service work. If you need a part, John is the guy to find it.
Fun fact: John once lived in the apartment that used to be half of the main building here at Charles Mill Marina.
Karie, Pleasant Hill Marina Manager

Her favorite events at the lake are Christmas in July, and the annual lake concert.
