Some sad news to share, the sudden passing of master gig builder – David (Dave) Currah.

Dave passed away on Sunday peacefully. He retired due to ill health in 2020, having built a fleet of gigs.

Dave has been a prolific gig builder building both by himself and with his father, Jim. Building his first gig along with his father ‘Ryder’ for his home club, Looe.
