Work starts on the 26th and 27th October at Biffer’s place in Southampton

Biffer has kindly offered us his Custom Ribs workshop, please bring your own health and safety equipment like gloves, dust masks and goggles etc.

Here's Biffer's website: http://www.customrib.com/

I’ll bring the rib down on the Saturday for 10am so if you are coming PM me and I’ll send you the address.

We will be removing the console and working on cleaning and repairing the gelcoat.

Now there's an excellent plan,

Big thumbs up

Right, been up to natwest and they've given me a instant saver account and we can pay into that, the account number is 46703357, the sort code is 524132.

I've explained what we are going to do with the account and they are happy with this, I would suggest that when you donate you put Macmillan and your RIBnet name so it will show on the statement.
I've elected to have the statements online so I can make our transactions as transparent as possible

In my experience...... quality auctioned items for charity seem to attract a premium, i would expect the finished rib to easily achieve or exceed its market value due to the fact that its for a good cause.

The key to success will be targeting the audience of potential auction winners (purchaser) in the best setting......... or how about a raffle at somewhere like the boat show next year?

How about a fixed odds raffle. Only say 1,000 tickets at 5. That way you know your odds of winning and also Macmillan is certain of a fixed price.

An auction could end with too low a bid and an open raffle draw too little.

You can forget a Rib.net Raffle

I tried this last year, with the view to giving away one Garmin 750s per month but I was told quite clearly it was not permitted on here due to gambling rules etc.

Auction is the only way, there's no way it'll get the interest to be done at the SBS so my guess is eBay

I once saw a vw camper raffled and they couldn't sell enough tickets. A decent military 5.4 yam 90 and good trailer could be worth as much as 10,000

You need 2 people really wanting it to get a good price at auction.

Or

There is always sealed bids

I suppose this is where we need the assistance of the media machine to capture the imagination of the boating public.

I for one don't want to poo poo the idea of loaning 40 to the cause as i would be prepared to throw my hard earned spondoolies in to the mix, but i would be gutted at the end if my contribution ended up being worth less than donating it and giving the tax relief..... and the thought of someone getting a bargain off the back of hard work, genorosity and charity sticks in the throat a bit

Yeah, that's a bit small, I think the perfect size is a 90 however I think the navy used 75hp?
