Because it's WORTH it! This boat has had such extensive work done to it! It's just a damn shame it's even up for sale.

Forget about the raffle Bill. The economy will likely turn around before you sell enough tickets.

I think if we could get enogh people to get raffle tickets prices down low, then it would not hurt someones pocket book to bad when they loose, i would buy in at 50 to 100 bucks a ticket, but a lot of people dont have 500 or more to take a chance at this point in there lives. nice boat you have there, i have thought about selling my boat cause i just dont use it that much, add up the boat note, insurance, and storage for the year and divide that by the number of times you use the boat and you can see for some people it cost 3 to 6 grand a trip just to go out for the day

I think in that situation there were alot of people that just wanted to help and bought extras.

It was my boat that was raffled off and I know that alot of my friends and family bought tickets and they would have had no idea as what to do with the boat just wanted to help the cause. The tickets were 100 and all be need to get to was what the bullet was worth not anywhere near what you need for the gun.
I think everything went pretty smooth though.
As far as the credit cards being charged back I heard that too and called Steve he said that it was only on the AMF raffle that that happened not the Bullet.
I am still forever thankfull for everyone that was envolved it helped make a real tough part of my life eaiser!

A perfect example of why you should never talk business at a bar. I believe their is something illegal about selling raffle tickets for personal property. I'm by no means an attorney, but it seems a little to easy to "cheat", if you know what I'm saying. Wow, my brother just won my boat. Enough said

This is a great idea if you like jail. A raffle is a game of chance not skill, which is gambling.
