You may notice a small message at the top of the Forums requesting voluntary site operating funds for another year.
Making a contribution is easy via PayPal, and there are also instructions for sending a check.

This site is funded by a lot of small donations from many of its users for over a decade.
There is no commercial advertising and no pop-up ad stuff.

Please join with me and throw some dollars into the kettle to pay for the hosting and storage costs that Sean has to pay out-of-pocket.

Thanks very much,

If Rick & Al can afford a fraction, I'll be in for a fraction also. Please don't tell the admiral; the $50k would scare her.

Hi Sean. The check is in the mail. Thanks for all you do for us Ericson and Olson owners. The webpage has been a great help to me as I have updated some of Amazing Grace's systems. Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Dave and Donna-Marie.

Another PayPal contribution done! :egrin: I wish I could do more, but I guess every bit helps!
Thanks, Sean, for keeping this site going! Also thanks to all those who contribute their expertise and experience--we have all learned so much to help keep our lovely boats sailing for many years to come!

Thank you!

And another Paypal contribution done!

This site and its users have saved me much time, frustration, and likely dollars over the years.

Thank You - Everyone

Well, tomorrow is Monday, Jan 05th. The holidays are over, the decorations have been put away for another year - and EY.o's fundraising has come to a close for this year. The hosting bill has been paid, the URL updated and other items taken care of.


Thank you to everyone who participated - large and small. I really appreciate your willingness to help support the site, and am happy that you've found it useful in the ownership of your Ericson hull. I've grown quite fond of the owners in this group - and have been lucky enough to meet several of you at different times. It it through you that I get to keep one foot in the boating world, if vicariously at that - thank you so much.

As an aside, I wanted to note that if I've seemed a little air-headed in the last year or two, you can chalk it up to a new job, a long commute and other daily stresses, etc. We all have new challenges to face - and I, like many of you, are facing them now at this point in my life (aka - elderly parents, etc). I am hopeful that things will smooth out somewhat in 2015, and look forward to hearing from all of you as well.

Best Wishes to you all - and from our family to yours - wish you a healthy, happy new year!
