Salvage McGuckin's Yacht and Whiskey!

On Sept. 24th Irish Sailor Gregor McGuckin was forced to abandon his yacht in the Golden Globe Race.

He was rescued and his vessel now floats apx. 1200 miles West of Fremantle Australia. Onboard is a cargo like no other - a cask of famous seven-year-old Irish Whiskey from Glendalough. Storm tossed, it has now been 'aged at sea' in the most epic way. Sadly, it now drifts far from any welcoming glasses.

We are two brothers who work in the US Merchant Marine, and we have taken on the task of salvaging the Whiskey, and getting Gregor his yacht back.

But this will take funding! Flights, vessel charter, fuel, etc. What will you be willing to donate to save this legendary vessel and it's precious cargo?
