3 September 2021 - A message from our Chairman, Danny Simms
On behalf of Doubtless Bay Promotions inc, I note with sadness the passing
of Cliff Knight. We extend our sympathy to his widow Jenny and to his
family. He was a long-time member and stalwart of Doubtless Bay Promotions
He established Knight Engineering and was involved in many significant
engineering projects in the far North. He was a well-known member of the
business community. His son Chris continues the family business in Awanui.
Cliff designed and built a number of steel boats. The largest being a
yacht Lady O that with a bunch of friends and family he sailed to and
cruised in the Pacific Islands. Being Cliff there were many hilarious
stories resulting. He was one of those special characters that made the
North what it is. Skilled, articulate, informed, and always open to debate
issues. He had an ability to make a point with humour and one liners.
It was a pleasure to know him. This photo is so typical. You can see the
mischief in his eyes.
