Re: The great sailboat giveaway!

I can afford a boat, I just can't afford to bum around the coast for two years.

Then comes the question, if these crews are bumming around the coast "free to cruise" and disaster strikes, how are you going to get those boats back, loaded with supplies, and then deployed to the disaster site in any sort of timely manner?

How are you even going to load these boats with rescue supplies on top of cruising supplies?

I'm doubtful you're going to find anyone ready to pay their own way and the cost of a boat for two years to do this, but I'm even more doubtful that any logistics planning has been put into how this would actually work.

Raffle the donated boats and donate it to Red Cross disaster relief.
