Hi George,

I'm really shocked, saddened and upset to read your news about Greg.

I'd noticed that the build had "stopped" on or around the 11th, and thought Greg had maybe put it back in the attic to temporarily recoop his "build-batteries" as we all tend to do from time to time. That it won't be completed is a loss to all on Mayhem - but nothing compared to your loss of a good friend, and to his daughter (daughters?) their father.

I'd PM'd him recently regarding some technical thoughts about a project he was considering - I know he had a pile of plans brewing up for all sorts of things, not least his long term wish for a scaled-up version of his sailing canoe.

A very very bad day for all of us.

Very sad, he will be truly missed. His build was a breath of fresh air, and I learned a lot.
Condolences to his family and friends

Sad news indeed
Condolences to his Family and friends.

A true scratch builder who saw potential in things most of us would bin.

He will be missed by all who's lives he touched.

RIP Greggy

I'm absolutely schocked,

a man with such a huge drive, ingenuity and witt so suddenly disappeared.
he definitely will be missed.
I was about to propose to meet in person, to discuss the building of smacks.

Condolences to his family and friends.

What a shock, he was such a warm and jovial bloke who could always be relied upon to inpsire, cheer you up or simply have a bit of banter. He will be sadly missed indeed. RIP Greg
