BuffaloBill Posted May 8, 2014 Share Posted May 8, 2014 I’m sure that many people on here are not aware that Duncan Prophet sadly died on 13 March this year. He may be better known as Geo Smith of Wroxham, next to Roys DIY store, which he and his wife and 2 sons have run since 1975. It was Duncan who built up the Sheerline boats before selling to the Applegate family who moved that part of the business to Thorpe as Wroxham Marine and has become a prestigious brand name both here and abroad. I won’t go into details but suffice to say that despite health problems of both his wife and himself, he was a honourable man and had become a friend due to us buying a our Sheerline 950 and it being the last boat that he built as a Sheerline. He always had time to answer questions and would not let anyone down if it was within his power to do so. A lovely man and sad loss. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
