We are delighted to welcome Cadan to the marine engineering team at Weir Quay.   We are proud to offer an excellent marine engineering service to customers from all over the Plymouth, Devon region as well as our mooring customers

Cadan comes to Weir Quay from over the border in Cornwall!  

Having gained a City and Guilds level 3 in Light Marine Engineering he continued his studies at Falmouth Marine School whilst working at Weir Quay under a modern apprenticeship scheme.  He has now completed this and is a full time member of the engineering team.

As well as shaping up to being an excellent marine engineer Cadan's prowess on the oars of a gig are remarkable!  He is a crew member of the Cornish Pilot Gig "Irene" which has come a commendable 6th overall in the men's races at the Scilly Pilot Gig Championships, 2012 and 2013 to top it with an impressive 4th in 2014!  We're holding out great hopes for 2015!
