About Us

head shotI started Afloat Marine Supplies because I am passionate about boating generally, and sailing specifically.  Located in Fredericton, New Brunswick, I have spent most of my life on and around the Saint John River and the Bay of Fundy. 

While we started out as a power boating and water skiing family, my father and I discovered sailing in the early 90's with a small Chrysler 17 daysailer. We haven't looked back. A Hobie 16 was the first boat of my own, then a Hughes 29 and now a C&C Landfall 38 named Shackleton II.

My wife Amy, our two children and I ply the waters of Grand Lake, the Saint John River, the Bay of Fundy and beyond.

My mission for this business is to be able to earn income from my passion. I sell products that I find interesting and useful and that I can stand behind personally. 









Fair winds!
