Simon Sadubin served his time at Timber Boat Services in Snails Bay - one of the last traditional boatyards in Balmain. He trained under ex-Cockatoo Island shipwrights Richard Wood and Nigel Shannon. Prior to training as a shipwright Simon was a qualified Industrial Designer and worked at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour Sydney.
Simon employs one other Shipwright Paul Sunnucks who served his time at Garden Island, and has taken on his first apprentice Troy Lawrence to train and pass skills onto the next generation of traditional shipwrights on Sydney Harbour. Rick Wood is also a member of the team working on special projects.
