With nearly 30 years of sea going experience, which commenced as a deckhand on Tasmanian rock lobster vessels, Drew eventually progressed to Master of 24000Hp tugs in the oil and gas industry.

Drew’s experience includes time in the South-East trawl and East Coast Tuna long line fishery, on container ships to Northern Asia & Europe, on product tankers supplying the South Pacific Islands, conducting marine research throughout the Australian EEZ, maintenance of navigation aids in Northern Australia, and Antarctic resupply and fisheries control.

Drew holds a Master 1 and has, for the past 8 years, sailed as Master of anchor handling vessels conducting mooring and towing of mobile offshore units across Australia and Asia.

Has always called Hobart home and is excited to be spending some more time here as an AMSA Accredited Surveyor for Kedge. Later in 2018 will likely see Drew competing in his 20th Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
