Yep, it is fund raising time
Coledata hosts this sight and continue to upgrade software and hardware to meet the challenges of the ever changing Internet. The blunt of this cost is born by Coledata, i.e. John Cole. We had two or three fundraisers in the past and it’s time to help support this service.
The goal for this fundraiser is $1,500. We need to show our appreciation for this service by helping offset some of the cost. Unlike NPR, we only come to you once ever few years.
I am asking donations of either $25, $50, $75, or $100. At the $50 level, we just need 30 sailors to meet our goal. Lenora and I will make the 1st donation of $50. A link for donations is shown in the top menu under Forum List. When you make a donation, please add your name to the list by posting in this thread.
I once asked John Cole, if he is willing to shut the site down, should we not make our fundraising goal. His reply to me was, "No! There is too much valuable information about the Bristol Channel Cutter for me to even consider that recourse. John is a form British Naval Officer and loves the traditional of sail. How many businesses would keep a site open that did not pay for itself? We all know the answer to that questions.
