I'll post this up in the hope that it doesn't ruffle anyone feathers, Skipper Markey has ask/ offered to move his rib ride boat round to the dock for a day, he has offered to do rib rides in his 10m boat with 2x300 hp on, he has offered 25% his takings to the cause!, It's a good chance to see how large boat travels over the Solent chop

I would have thought the best return surely has to be an eBay auction ? as sealed bid are only going to submitted from maybe 100 members on here if that, an auction on a platform like eBay, with links to this thread, publicity, local press etc all linking to the eBay auction would be seen by thousands, with a far greater chance of a higher donation being secured.

Sealed bids isn't IMO in the best interests of the Project, or all that have contributed but cannot attend etc. Its a shame that's the way its going forward

I agree. Regardless of the fees involved using ebay, I'd have thought their worldwide platform would be the best shop window for this. Any other blogs, facebook pages and publicity can be linked to the ebay auction to 'drive' traffic to the site and there's a transparency about it that I think the cause deserves too.

All IMHO of course....
