I didn't state or imply AT was involved in this - just happens to be the offering in the raffle.
TSPM - good luck, I hope it works out for both you and the winner.

I just know, on my budget, I could afford the 1K it takes to enter the game, but not what it would cost to keep playing with that much boat if I got into it.

Under $600 to outfit it??
I thought according to this board if you didn't have life-lines for vests you didn't really care about yourself or your passengers safety.
You can only afford one on that budget - and it's not CG approved.
Plan on going boating alone with no lines, fenders, CG safety gear, adequate tow-vehicle, etc...

All I'm saying is I couldn't afford to win it.

Sounds like the boating market is so far in the tank that you'll do anything to move inventory.
Sorry to be brutally honest - just what I see from this perspective.
Don't mean to be a dikhead - just an opinion.
Good Luck.

Good Luck TSPM. I think it's a pretty cool idea if it works. Not sure why all the negativity on this thread.

This is only the second time that I have seen a boat being raffled. It is done quite offen in the Corvette and Muscle car circles. Good luck,

You guys think Leslie can really get a grand for John??????JK, of course
