The Board of Directors of Bellingham Marine Industries has appointed J. Everett Babbitt as the sole President of Bellingham Marine. When Babbitt joined Bellingham in 1984 as a Northwest region sales rep, he brought with him 10 years of experience in the marine industry. In 1988, he accepted the position and responsibilities of General Manager of the Southwest Division in California.

In 2001, he was promoted to Co-President and was responsible for operations, production, construction, accounting and all financial aspects of Bellingham Marine.
