Let's not get hung up on price...it's not about 'profit' ......is it?

It'll sell for whatever someone is willing to pay.... however it comes about.:-)

We'll find out how much it's worth when it sells

When we do the work we don't talk about the boat or Macmillan, we talk about the person that is going to buy it (make a massive donation to Macmillan). So we are doing all this work for them. We want them to be absolutely over the moon and have a fantastic rib

On top of this we have managed to get them lots of nice kit for it too

For us it's all about the "Mr Legend" who is going to make the donation

Except it won't, as if "Mr Legend" makes the top sealed bid but it doesn't match the "reserve" price set, he doesn't get it. So by setting a reserve or minimum price your making it about profit (Or at least money), not project

But it's not sealed bids, it's going to auction.

If you lot don't stop squabbling I'll set light to it, it doesn't matter about mr this or mr that, it will get sold regardless and what ever it makes will go to a good cause

still think my idea of asking Bonhams to do the auction is the way to go, if they can get 200+k for a Harley Davidson think what they could do with the MacRib
