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 Peter @ Boatsandoutboards4sale ~ www.BoatsandOutboards4Sale.co.uk ~ 07930 421007
Agree wholeheartedly.

Is there a way to use eBay and do the day, it's probably unethical but we will be doing it for the right reason

We'd just need to time the auction to end while the party's on, and a laptop hooked up to a screen so we could watch the closing bids. . . And lots of folk with deep pockets.
Can't see anything unethical about that.

We need to use whatever method is going to generate the most money.

Southampton boat show would be ideal for an auction or 50 a go raffle tickets. I guess they were not interested in donating a stand.

I'm not convinced sealed bids will generate a sufficiently high price.

I do loads of auctions but must admit I don't like sealed bids after losing a property to some estate agent and builder doing skulduggery together, I don't really mind where it gets sold as truly I'm only interested in getting it done right, I'll go with whatever you lot want.
