Macmillan to do the raffle.
Winner must collect from soton, or can sell via Ribnet for what ever price they want 10-12k?? So may be a second bite at the cherry.
At least you will achieve 20k, minus some costs?
Unfortunately Macmillan can't do what you are suggesting, they are very excited about what we are doing and they have said that our story of us all working together to produce something out of nothing with 100% of the proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support is unique. I am hoping that they will do a story on us to explain to others how we did it and give others inspiration for their fundraising.

perhaps a flight of fancy ...
but do Ribnet members in the Solent area (or elsewhere) who cant afford to buy it outright want to club together and take joint ownership?
just a thought ...?

Yes a syndicate is a good idea to be able to buy the rib, I can't get involved in that because I'm selling the rib.

This is quite a busy build thread so I would prefer to keep this thread about the project

Nugent's the dude with a spray gun!

Biffer managed to save the tank with the melted pickup pipe, these tanks travelled all the way from Germany to Hull and all the way around England before they made it to the boat.

Biffer makes the frame for the Pelli case that was donated by Trailer Guy

Ian M cleans the inside of the console, this is tough work but Ian cracks on.

Crew 2 works on the Pelli Case removing some sticky pad from the bottom, the case is then bolted to the trailer.

It's all coming together now...

Our boat donor came to see us today and he loved what we had been doing.

Looks fabulous guys and gals; absolutely fabulous.

BTW, anyone know what model that Silva compass is? I like the look of one of those for my own.

Biffer gets all anal again but this time with the transducer that was donated by Peter on here BoatsandOutboards4Sale | Hand-picked boats & motors, fully tested, delivered nationwide.

And our Ducks Back cover donated by Ducks Back | Protective Outdoor Products | Boat Covers UK fits like a glove, well it will do when the seat backs are on and the quick release A frame is removed.
