Rick Hagaman ? Operations Manager and Director of Special Projects
Rick Hagaman has spent most of his life working in the marine industry in one capacity or another. Like so many in the Seaview family, Rick?s love of boats stems back to his a childhood and the time spent with his father learning to sail and cruising in the San Juans. From that moment on, Rick developed a passion for all things marine and has spent the last 38 years building a depth of knowledge and experience that is unparalleled in the industry.

In the early days of his career he ran his own fiberglass repair operation. In the mid-1970s, Rick began working with his brother Doug on the construction of Star Racing Sailboats and L-21 Day Sailers from fiberglass molds in a garage. In 1976, he built a boat of his own which he still sails during his summer vacations on Lake Chelan.

Rick joined Seaview in 1980. At the time he joined the company, Seaview was still just a single facility out at Shilshole Marina. He and Phil built Seaview East from the ground up in 1985 and he stayed at Seaview East as Operations Manager until June of 2011.

These days he spends the majority of his time in Bellingham ? travelling as needed between the North Yard and Fairhaven sites. His primary responsibility is site work, with a focus on continual improvements, upgrades and refinements of our environmental systems. Rick takes Seaview?s role as a steward of the environment very seriously and has a committed personal interest in ensuring that the company does everything within our power to safeguard the Puget Sound for future generations.

Rick recently married local Bainbridge Island yoga teacher Karen O?Leary. The two now spend their weekends boating on Lake Chelan and relaxing in their cabin where the only problems to solve are what?s on the dinner menu and the all of the puzzles are of the crossword variety.
