owner / marine technician
Dewayne’s passion for the marine industry started in 2000 when he was in the the U.S. Coast Guard working as a Marine Technician. He gained quality experience and knowledge from the extensive training and courses offered to him by the military. After spending six years in the Coast Guard Dewayne decided to extend his knowledge and attend Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Florida. Upon completion, he took a job as the Maintenance Mechanic at Atlantis Submarines in the US Virgin Islands. While in the Virgin Islands he met his wife, Jill, and a year later she led him to his next adventure… Toronto, Ontario. He then joined the Puddle Duck crew and for the next 5 years he worked as a Marine Technician. Located at the largest marina in Toronto, Puddle Duck is the company that really showed Dewayne the value of great costumer service. Here he learned how a family business can give a real personal touch and still provide quality work.
The biggest adventure of his life started after his son Liam was born in 2013. They then decided to move across the country to beautiful Vancouver Island and start a new business in 2014. Two years later they decided to grow their family, and their daughter Charlotte was born. With 19 years experience in the marine industry Dewayne is excited to provide excellent service while keeping the family business charm.
