For the benefit of people joining this thread today you can read my post from yesterday quoted below.
A ver big thank you to Leeargyle, Landlord, C2ribs (if Gemineye is available that day), Lakeland terrier and Whisper for allowing me to have a few miles at the helm in their ribs on the round island trip. So I'm donating £25 for helming those ribs round the island, and £5 for helming Onboard Charters "Rascal " all day Easter Sunday, and £5 for helming C2 Ribs new "Gemineye" also over Easter,
So that is £35 promised from me so far. I want to pay more so need another 13 kind people to allow me to helm their rib for a few miles of the circumnavigation with them beside me. I promise to take very good care of your rib and will not be abusing it at all. If I get the full 18 ribs promised I will add a further £30 bonus making the total pledged £130.
So who else wants to help me "helm" round the island in eighteen different ribs towards this worthy cause?

I promise to take care of your rib and you will be beside me ensuring I do. I guess it's around 3NM in each rib. I will be helming "Onboard Rascal" on Easter Sunday, and will probably be helming C2 Ribs new Gemini before then, so that's £10 already. Just need another 18 ribs.
So who's up for raising another £90 from me, let me know.
