Things we still need
We still need to acquire all of the items listed below, and would be very grateful for financial donations matching any of these. Some might consider this as a kind of "wedding list": we're not sure if Chris and Clint are marrying the sea or the boat!
We would like to show our appreciation of such donations by recording your first name in the right hand column, but will understand your desire for anonymity if you let us know you don't want this shown.
Our preferred method of donation is by cheque: please contact Chris, Clint or Helena for details of where to send it.
