I would just like to take this moment to say a big "Thank You" to the 14 individuals who have provided a donation to the SEAWINGS 'fighting fund', the story of which you can read further down this page, following my recent announcements. It is very much appreciated.
Each and every donation, however large or small, goes a long way towards keeping the main site and it's other attachments - such as The Flying Boat Forum - going, and more importantly continuing to grow.
The deadline for the next set of bills into me is almost exactly two months away now and I keep my fingers crossed that all will be well.
The phrase that I have coined "If you want it, support it" has never been truer than it is right now and will continue to be the key phrase for the foreseeable future; and that applies to most long-standing websites 'out there'.
You know the ones; they are the ones that YOU visit every day to get your modeling or aviation 'fix'. Trouble is that no-one ever expected them to get as big as they have become and on-going funding has become a serious problem.
To those that have not as yet donated, you may not want to, you may not be able to and for a whole host of very creditable and understandable reasons that may well be the case, for which I certainly do not criticise nor condem.
However, if you ARE thinking of doing so, NOW is the time to do it!
Therefore, my grateful thanks goes to the 14 so far:
Antony Richardson, Chris Eldridge, Alex Norton, Richard Gibbons, Olivier Piccin, Eugene Obert, Rob Dunnett, Simon Denney, Edward Musson, Steve Rogers, George Harvey, Roy Tassell, Anders Gilderstam and D. Chouinard.
