Help get Flipper back on the water

Unfortunately, one of the sport’s kindest (Matty Turnbull, AKA Flipper) has lost his ski in a workshop fire. A local guy, who I’ve known since I was an apprentice, had just finished repairing Matty’s ski. He hadn’t long packed up, and was headed home when he received a call that the building (that was housing Matty’s ski) was up in flames. Unfortunately due to an insurance indiscretion, the ski (along with a lot of other stuff) isn’t covered. It’s an unfortunate circumstance which can’t be overcome, so we are taking it upon ourselves to help our fellow freerider out.
 
If you know him, you know that Matty T doesn’t expect anything for free and isn’t looking for a handout. But (as you can see from the pictures) everything is cactus.

We may be able to salvage a few parts here and there, and have them recoated/reanodized but the majority of it will need replacing. The only silver lining in this story is that the engine and tank were removed to allow the ski to be flipped for a respray underneath. 
 
Now we are asking for any help to get Matty T back on the water. Whether it by donating money or parts, any help would be greatly appreciated and would not go unnoticed.
