Sad News

I am very sorry to say that my father Graham passed away this week after a short but very brave battle with cancer.

Ribbing was our hobby that we did together to get away from the world and spend a bit of time with each other and although we didn't know anything about boats when we started, Ribnet made it all possible.

We had great fun with our rib projects and we were both looking forward to one day owning a larger / cabin rib and taking along a few more family members.

Everyone we have met from this forum has been truly fantastic and a real pleasure to spend time with and I am so pleased to say that I have met some really good friends on here too.

Graham was my father, my best friend and my ribbing buddy and I will miss him very much and I just wanted to say thank you to you all.

Alex

Sorry for your loss mate. I know how it feels. The thing that keeps me going now is I have the same relationship with my son as you had with your Dad in all respects. It does get better. Always remember the good times and the fun you had that's what keeps me going especially now as it is coming up to the anniversary of his death.
Cheers
