Dave Currah

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.

You only have to look at the list below to see the number of gigs that he has built the and spread of clubs that he built for.

An amazing legacy that he has left for present and future generations to enjoy.
