Meet the Team

Zack

Zack Green

Founder & CEO

Zack Green has worked on the ocean in many aspects. His family owned a mussel farm on Nova Scotia’s South Shore where as a teenager he discovered his strong work ethic. At the age of 16 started scuba diving and his love of the oceans since has taken him to every corner of the planet. He later headed south and worked on private yachts, both sailing and motor. With loads of sea time, he moved from swabby to Captain and with his 3000 ton Master of All Oceans license he has traveled the world on boats.

He’s now a family man and has settled back in Nova Scotia where he owns and operates Mahone Marine, a busy boat dealership on the South Shore. He loves a good challenge. Zack has a keen interest in all things marine.

Ken deBoer

Aside from being on or in the water, Ken’s lifelong interest has been electronics. Starting with Ryerson University then retiring after 34 successful years as a Systems Technologist with Motorola Solutions, Ken has used his extensive technical and electronic expertise to engineer and build several submersible ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles). The first prototype of “Little Buzz” began on his dining room table in 1988. Ken can often be found in his workshop, writing code, or milling something for the latest piece of underwater hardware, or doing field trials with his latest innovation in ROV technology. In addition, as an SSI certified Master SCUBA diver who started diving in the early 1980’s, Ken knows the importance of safety and experience when it comes to in-shore marine.
