Ok, is that what this boat cost, then fair enough. So that is what you are saying is the "cutoff point"?
I am sure that there are enough CF members we can truly rely on to establish the real facts and story behind this fire ... no?
What I am suggesting is that we stand together if it is a genuine case where insurers don't "stand their man". I am not in any way suggesting we jump in and help out non-deserving/wealthy people, who can afford such a loss.
I am a cynical, not trusting person by nature, believe me when I say that. But (yes I started a sentence with but), I am one of the first to jump in and help when it is a deserved case. Why not wait and see and not just turn a blind eye when it is one of our own (a genuine sailor with a heart and soul like ours).
It is times like this that I am reminded of our recently departed friend "Jay". Like most, I never knew him but I am supportive of everything we can do to help him and his family
The time is long past that we, as fellow sailors, look for reasons we can support each other, rather than look for reasons we can turn our eyes away! We do it every time a sailor gets lost
at sea; why not when a sailor loses a boat to tragedy?
Just my 2 cents, as many would say.
