FORT LAUDERDALE, April 19, 2004 NASCAR fans and recreational anglers receive a chance to bid on one of the most unique, one-of-a-kind collectible items offered on eBay, or anywhere.

A new fully-loaded 2002 CDC 911 Nitro bass boat, personally signed by 43 NASCAR Nextel Cup drivers and featuring unique artwork by world-renowned marine life artist Guy Harvey is up for bid. The package also includes a new Mercury 200 Optimax outboard motor and matching trailer adorned with Guy Harvey graphics also. The lucky bidder will also receive one case of four (4) 1:24-scale collectible diecast exact replicas of the actual boat.

The eBay auction of the craft begins Friday, April 23rd., 4:00pm.

Some 43 NASCAR drivers signed the boat at Daytona International Speedway including the likes of Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and champions including Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, Dale Jarrett, Bobby Labonte, Darrell Waltrip, Rusty Wallace, Matt Kennseth, Richard Petty and Terry Labonte.

Nowhere else on the planet does such a unique boat exist, said foundation president Darrell Gwynn. The lucky owner will be hard-pressed to decide whether to put it in a museum or use it to go fishing on his or her favorite lake. In reality, they could do both!

The boat is owned by the Darrell Gwynn Foundation to Cure Paralysis, and it along with its custom fishing-themed graphics were donated for charitable fundraising purposes by Bass Pro Shops and the Guy Harvey Research Institute, respectively.

Proceeds from the auction of the boat will benefit the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, a fully accredited 501(c)3 organization. The foundation exists to prevent, provide for and ultimately cure spinal cord injuries and other debilitating illnesses. To expedite specific cures, the Foundation assists in the funding of targeted research.
