Such a wonderful service for people to enjoy the river on these historic boats and be able to hire them out privately is fantastic. Here's to seeing you on the water for years to come!

We had a trip on the Princess Freda the other day and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do hope you can pull through the current difficulties and will survive to continue to bring so much pleasure to people. Good luck!

Hello. I am sad to hear this. Wasn't aware of the situation. I know John and his family and also know Leila. Bunch of absolute lovely people. Hope everything gets well and this helps. Hello from The Castle pub.

I was moved by the Telegraph article “Dunkirk’s little ship that’s now struggling to stay afloat” and very much hope that you do and things are looking up. Rosemary

Come on everyone. Only 2 days to save a wonderful piece of our history. There must be loads of us out there who could afford a few pounds.

We must preserve and remember the little boats that saved so many soldiers and airmen from the Dunkirk beaches. So much was done by things so small!

Good luck to you all. I had never heard of your company until now. I hope to be a fully paid up passenger next spring.

I have had a few trips on the boats, and cannot imagine the river without them. I hope everyone digs deep and supports a great cause. Thank you x
