Today’s podcast is with Dave Sharp of Sharp Marine Restoration & Joinery in Vancouver, BC.

Dave grew up in Ontario and began to pursue an education in mechanical engineering. He soon realized it was not his cup of tea and traveled to England to attend IBTC (The International Boatbuilding & Training College) to learn traditional boatbuilding.

After finishing at IBTC, Dave worked in boat yards in the United Kingdom, France, Ontario, and British Columbia before launching Sharp Marine 3 years ago in Vancouver. Dave performs some beautiful work on amazing boats of all shapes and sizes.
