It appears to me that you are soliciting funds in order to equip your boat for free, or, with as little of your own money as possible. I don't see on your website that you are a non-profit so any contributions will not be deductible.

If I'm wrong, please feel free to reply.

I agree, there's nothing new here and frankly I find your post a little naive and self serving with a feeling that lacks any real personal research on your part. I liken your attempts of soliciting funds no better than the emails I receive from a server in Ghana saying a long lost relative has died in a plane crash travelling to his diamond mine which I've now inherited.
