We have not found any serious sponsors for the trip so far. I was very surprised when the company I have a $1,000,000 life insurance policy with turned me down without even a serious review. I will not mention their name.
Bob, had his first radio interview on Sunday, yesterday. They did a great job, you can listen to it on line at: http://americanvarietyradio.com/download.html If it is not there look for "Two Florida Brothers" on his old broadcasts.
We have put the trip off until August 18, 2008. I have been praying for a sponsor to come up. All my work seems to no avail. It doesn't make any sense to me. The amount of publicity a company would be guaranteed to get far exceeds the $125,000 we are looking for. If the unthinkable happens, the publicity would be double or triple. We even offered lead capture on the website for the sponsor. My guess is that they just don't believe us.
We did the last trip against an awful lot of disbelief. Lord willing if we find some funding we will do this one. I know it is difficult at this moment in time, but that is what God specializes in the humanly impossible. I have to admit, I am discouraged buy not giving up. I will keep working as hard as I can to find the funding, we will just have to trust God for the rest.
One particular billionaire, Beryl Wolk, has given me his word to fund the trip and to make a movie: S-O-S; Most Dangerous Voyage S-O-S is the international call for distress, "Save Our Ship". It also stands for Save Our Seas. His business manager, Sam, has told me that it will be at least 90 days before he can fund the movie. We are actually looking for a bridge loan.
