The historic West Lynn ferry is in danger. The present owner cannot run it for another winter and needs to sell the business or shut down and sell his boats. If that happens we may not be able to start a new ferry for years, if ever.

I'm ready to take over but need your help. I am speaking to investors, but taking too much money in loans or giving away too great a share will be a burden on the ferry in future. We'd like to make the ferry a thriving family business, keep it nice and tidy and look ahead to opening a cafe and making passengers as comfortable as possible.

Please give a little so we can help turn this thing around.
