Vale David Rose

Postby maxm » Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:21 pm

It is with great sorrow that we advise the passing this morning of David Rose, owner of David Rose Yachts and builder of our Careel yachts. David and wife Pam were instrumental in forming the Careel Association with Pam serving as Secretary for many years. Through these boats and the Association so many people have met, formed life-long friendships, had travels and adventures together in Australia and around the world and generally formed treasured memories.

David will be missed.

Very sad news !!!
commiserations to Pam and family !!

I never met David personally only on the phone ...
Here's to his passion and the great boats and association he created.

His legacy will continue on ...

Cheers

That's very sad news indeed. We bought our Careel Mk3 455, 'Jabiru' from David back in 1994 and found David a warm generous and helpful person dedicated to his beloved Careels. He will be sadly missed.
