Ambassador Bio

Captain John Affleck, a shellfish fisherman from Burnmouth in Scottish Borders, got his first boat when he was 19 years old. Since then, he’s built and bought more than 10 vessels to get where is today. He’s been fishing from the same harbour his whole life. In fact, fishing has been in his family for generations, so he couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Trefjar, an Icelandic vessel manufacturer, first introduced John to Seakeeper when he was building his Cleopatra Fisherman. He’d heard great things about the technology, but no other potting vessel in Scotland had installed a Seakeeper yet. Recognizing the conditions of the area could sometimes get really rough and affect business, he took the plunge and hasn’t looked back since. He’s now installed his second Seakeeper in another vessel, and credits it with increased safety for himself and his crew, as well as helping to make his job a little easier and more comfortable! Fishing News awarded John as the “Shellfish Fisherman of the Year” in 2016, and he was a finalist in 2018 for the use of his Seakeeper in “Technical Innovation of the Year.”

"The Seakeeper took so much of the roll out of my boat that the increased safety was clear for myself and my crew. I highly recommend it for both safety and making my job a bit easier!"
