I am passionate about boating and have many years experience in the marine industry. I grew up sailing and racing in New Zealand, then travelled extensively offshore. This included cruising and doing boat deliveries. I worked in the marine canvas industry in San Diego for several years and raced at the San Diego Yacht Club. On returning to the sunny Bay of Plenty, I worked in two local sail lofts before establishing the Canvas Locker in the year 2000. I am a member of the Tauranga Yacht and Powerboat Club and enjoy getting out on the water when I can.
If you spot Jake on the Marina, you will know that Wendy is very close by. Jake is a well known member of the Canvas Locker team.
