To our family and friends:


This past year has been a bit of a blur, with the initial shock of losing Ryan, we have gradually grown in the tender embrace of all of your care, love, and concern for us.

We have tried to celebrate Ryan’s amazing life at each opportunity. Here are a few things that have happened, with a little help from our friends.


1.       The team at Superior Jetties have been amazing in their support of the family and a garden and plaque sprung up, all made by hand in house, within a couple of weeks.

2.       The VMR received many donations and refurbished their outdoor BBQ area and erected a sign in Ryan’s memory.

3.       There is a remembrance plaque (due next week) in the Surfers Paradise Catholic Church Columbarium on Fairways Drive, Clear Island Waters. There is a seat by the lake and it is a peaceful place.

4.       There is now a sign of remembrance erected above the Coral Sea Marina by Paul and the team in Airlie Beach.  Ryan was part of this community and this is a wonderful spot to visit.  Ben Kelman is there today with a can of CC, as is the Coral Sea crew.

5.       The Boat Works team have named their new 300T lift “Rhino”, which was Ryan’s nickname with his mates.  It is being commemorated with this sign on the 25th October 2019.

6.       In this years 75th Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, we have commissioned “Ryan’s Ride” to Tassy as he always wanted to do it.  The Beneteau First 40 “Protagonist” has Ryan’s Full Moon Rhino logo wrapped on the hull.  The logo was created by Franky McBain. John is in the crew and we look forward to this as a tribute to Ryan and his sense of adventure.

7.    The red beacon at the northern end of the spit “Single Ladies beach” has an unofficial name Ryan Hogan Red on Navionics.

Thank you




Jackie, John & David.
