    Great to see Bob is still going strong. We used to live in Whitby and Bob was a great neighbour. He lives true to the motto ” Ships of wood, men of steel”

    Brilliant! Its people like Bob, and stories like this that made me fall in love with this stretch of coast, and move here from half a world away.

    My parents had a place down by the quay side for many years and subsequently we were there a lot taking advantage of the free hospitality. Part of this time was making friends with local people, Bob being one. I used to work with him on his boat often, purely for experience and enjoyment, as I am a keen fisherman. I am half his age and he regularly mocked me for not being able to row like him in a swell when shooting the net!!! A nicer man you will never meet and so many many dear memories
