So being in this neck of the woods I reached out to inquire about winterizing the boat. The boat went on the market and may in fact have sold. I believe Rodd came to the realization that his sailing days were over. A very dear friend and boat Club friend of mine suffered a CVA in May of 2020 just as he was prepping to launch. He was also an instructor pilot. Had to sell his plane, boat and house. With increased age, comes a decrease in positive outcomes following CVA's .
Peggy, I agree, Go Fund Me is covering their costs and they are better and more reliable than some others I've used in the past. Simple to set up as well: Create a GoFundMe
Geez. Is there a "don't like" on this board?Im happy to donate, but in general I don't do Gofundme, etc unless I have some information on the exact needs. How good is the insurance coverage? How will the donations be used? , etc. Ive seen alot of wealthy people ask for money on Gofund me that really didnt need it. Although I think in Rodd's case its probably justified even just for the information and education hes shared with everyone over the years.
I did $50I've made a donation via his website.
I would like to know what forum members consider an adequate donation as I am at sea about this. I know it's a sticky subject since we come from very different economic circumstances. But some guidance would be helpful. I know he's got great challenges ahead but I doubt any one of us can remove those. Together we should be able to help to a significant degree.
AMEN!!! I'll be glad to spread the word if someone can provide me with a list. Perhaps his brother can pull that info from his website.Other sites on which Maine Sail has posted should also be brought in.
I agree.Of Course, someone would have to track the progress which may just be an additional strain on the family. That may be where a gofundme type route may be useful. Other sites on which Maine Sail has posted should also be brought in.
