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.
