Paul Tilley

There's no easy way of saying this, but after only a few days back home over New Year, Dad (Paul Tilley) was taken back into hospital. Dad was very poorly and passed away peacefully last night (5th Jan).

Dad had many friends from being in the inflatable boat industry so long and we will update this thread with the funeral arrangements in due course.

As I'm sure you can appreciate, that as a business, we may not be answering calls over the next week, but will be responding to emails when we can.

So sad to hear of your Dad's passing. He was without doubt one of the nicest and helpful guys to me and to many others within the boating world
My thoughts are with you and your family at this time.

That's sad news Samantha and I'm sorry for your loss and mine. I never spent a moment in Paul company that I regretted even when I was giving him money. We have lost a true ctaftsman and a good guy.

Very sad news. I worked with Paul on and off for the last 10 years on various projects and always admired his quality of workmanship. He will be greatly missed by the marine industry. RIP Paul
