~ALL DONORS WILL GET A HANDRAWN POSTCARD OF FFHARRY~ We are raising money for our new ship and also the upgrade of the holistic research wessel FFHARRY. After a long summer in cultural research and showmaking on the inland Swedish waters; as a combined pirateship, supermarket, and rescue patrol for all the thousands of canoists that have been visiting the lake Stora Le. We have been trying to earn money to afford the waterlocks out to the open seas. We Are in dire need of some assistance! First of all, Harry needs some light changes and of some wooden parts and new anodes, or the motor will end up in a big pile of rust! The ship also need a stroke of paint and a simple motorfix. But Harry is in great shape and is very sailable. This is to make sure That this wooden Boat from 1981 will live on for many years to come. Estimated cost is det to about 20000 kroner or about 2000 Euro. Then, after the ship have gone through a light makeover, we'll either pass it on to some souls who are interested, or sell it, then buy a bigger, used motorsailer. We have already found this ship and this is the first part of the money we need to raise. We Are to pick up the ship right North of Stockholm in just under four weeks. The ship costs 40000 kroner, about 4000 Euro - and is å beautifull old wooden sailer with the safety-features needed to sail the open water. It is also a ship with space for all of our crewmates. As of now it's only beds for the two captains aboard! Not really practicle when the crew varies between 4 and 6. As the temperature sinks it is not very Nice for the crew to sleep on land in tents. We need to upgrade. The intentions for "FFHARRY II" will be to reach the mediterrean sea via the european canals, before winter comes at bay. We hope to spread happiness and love with true pirate-shows and our up-and-coming FoxenFestival outside Lübeck in Germany. We also hope to raise a little money through this campain for this meetup that we are planning to make happen within the end of the year. What we really need is 40.000 for the ship we somehow will have to get in a few weeks and then the money to take care of our old. Any eccess cash will go to making sure the new ship is safe and have all features needed for safe sailing and to arrange the Foxen festival. We are extremely happy for all contributions - Big and Small, and would like to invite all funders and fun-seekers to the festival!

Ohoy!

We are getting close to Stockholm and will enter the Swedish capital tomorrow afternoon! The fundraiser is going fantastic, we now have 14.326 kroner of the 40.000 needed to purchase our new pirate ship.

We are of course also doing our very best on our side and have started our very own pirate waffle business. We are also selling postcards and candybags. Our belive is that Stockholm will be hungry for waffles and our story.

A huge thank you goes out to all contributors, we are getting there! Please don't hesitate about supporting our campain if you have the chance. Feel free to read our blog www.harryfloats.wordpress.com to stay informed about our progress. Also make sure to buy a waffle if you see us around or to throw some spare cash into this fundraiser, we still need all the help we can get to make this happen.

We have talked to some of you that arent able to use a credit card. You can also make contributions via paypal and we will make sure to put the money into the campain in your name.

Thank you all for your time, cash and support!

7461 kroner raised. Meaning we are getting closer for every day that pass. Thank you tons to all contributors, we are extremely happy for every bit of help we can get.

There is still a long way to our minimim goal of 40.000, but if you guys work in this speed we can make this happen! On order to get our new ship we have to raise another 32.000 so please. Please don't hesitate if you have just a little bit of faith in us :)

At the moment we are crossing the canals of Sweden. It's a wonderfull journey and in a day or two I'll make sure to post some great pictures from Dalslandskanal on our blog www.harryfloats.wordpress.com.
We are living as cheap as possible, saving every penny, emptying any forgotten pockets and making the phonecalls neccesary to get the ship. For now it is placed on drudock just north of Stockholm, just waiting for is to get there. But sluicing takes time, and we won't be able to see this beautiful marble of the sea for another week or two.

Please contact us if you have any questions. And some of you don't have a credit card needed for the gofundme site. It's then possible to use btc or paypal :)

All the best,
Captain Jack

Ohoy! Things happen fast in a holistic pirate world. We have found our new ship and are going to pick it up outside Stockholm in a few weeks. Meaning we have to raise parts of the money even faster than scheduled. We are going to make it!

But in order to survive sailing on open water we with our whole crew we will need a bigger ship. We have allready found it, so the race is on to get to 40000 kroner (4000 euros) as soon as possible.

Please consider donating to our cause, as of right now we are five crewmembers on board working as hard as we can to make this happen. If you have any questions feel free to contact us. Further updates are also available on www.harryfloats.wordpress.com

Best to all,
Captain Jack

There is powerful winds today with 2meter waves on the open waters. We 're now out on our second rescue mission for the day to get some stranded canoists safely towards the base camp.

On other hands, the locks Are closing next week, and we Are packing up our camp and selling our last goods for this season. It has been an unbelievable awesome summer with crazy amounts of Great people everyday!

In 5 days we Are heading south towards vänern, the biggest lake of Sweden. We have found a bigger ship That can potentially be FFHARRY II. At the cost of 40 thousand swedish kroners. We now have just enough to afford the waterlocks down to vänern. So all donations Big and Small Are very very apreciated!
Enjoying the storm today!
