I can usually be found in the loft, answering the phone and organising the work load. I’ve been in this business for over 8 years. Before this I worked for someone else in the sailmaking industry. My main interest (apart from The Boatshed) is sailing, I’m a qualified yachtmaster and have been sailing from the age of 8.
When I’m not in the loft you will usually find me on the water sailing, or at anchor somewhere in the Irish sea on board my boat (Wraith 2).
Lesley is the office queen, she will be found sorting out invoices and doing the dreaded VAT returns and generally TRYING to keep us all in order. You may find her in the office on the Marina as she is keeping the lads down there in order as well !!!!!!!
Cjay has been with the Boatshed for nearly 2 years but has been working around boats for the last 15+ years. He previously worked in Dickies of Bangor as the rigger for a number of years.
What does Cjay get up to when hes not in the loft? Well – let’s just say he’s got 5 kids who keep him busy!!
Chaz, has been in the workshop for 7 years now. He will be the first to meet and greet you when you come to the loft. His main role is to welcome everyone. He also makes sure all delivery drivers arrive with a biscuit!
In his time off, he wants nothing more than to chase a ball and relax at home – no sailing, just fields!
Dan has been with the Boatshed for 7 years now, You can usually find him in the loft, sewing covers and fixing sails. Dan has been making and repairing sails for 20+ years and what he cannot do on a sewing machine isn’t worth knowing.
When not in the loft Dan can be found, golfing, sailing and walking the dogs.
Kevin has been with the Boatshed for 7 years now. His main role is patterning and fitting all of our custom covers. If you bump into any of us working in a local marina, it’s usually Kevin that you will meet.
As you can see from photo, Kev loves fishing and can be found on the Irish Sea most weekends!!!!!!
