For my 10cents worth, I hope everything is well with him and if not that he is managing. And that when he is ready, all will be settled. He is far to valuable member of this site, that contributes solid information and real life experience, and doesn't speculate or bluster. And I've never even met the guy!
So if 50 buck aint enough then let me know i'll raise it. And if any of you hard done by souls are that desperate for your money back immediately then i'll pay you entirely just to get you to f#%k the hell off for good.

If a charter skipper took $2.5k of your money, I highly doubt you'd be ok and just sit there waiting for it with no updates or details of when you will get it back.

Dave put a post on this forum offering a charter on his boat. Some members replied and a date was set for the charter and Dave informed those what the arrangements were and any conditions including the cost? Payment upfront either in full or deposit ( not sure ) was required by Dave. Dave agreed ( as with almost all charters ) that if because of weather or conditions beyond his control all money paid would be refunded. 
I am not sure if Dave is actually in the charter business or his boat is licensed for commercial charters but that is another matter.
The charter has be cancelled by Dave ?? , due to weather. I am not sure if an alternative charter went ahead and the outstanding refunds are for those that could not make that date. In any event, a crew to cover costs must have been on board if this charter proceeded. 
At this point (some months ago), Dave has decided not to refund money owing to those he has taken money from for the original charter?. 
Dave has become uncontactable, evasive. 
This is usually referred to as a scam or theft irrespective of who the perpetrator is or their motivation.
To start pledging donations to support this is condoning it.
I don't buy for one second any sob story offered up by anyone in this situation to justify bailing Dave out. 
.                                         And that's perfectly understandable, I just see this as a way of helping out someone who seems to be a good bloke and also helping some other good blokes out as well, to be honest I have already drunk 50 bucks this weekend so if you don't want to contribute it's fine, completely understand
slowly going where everyone else has already been

Did you actually chip in $2.5k? lucky me only chipped in $400.

Either way its wrong and we don't know why the man disappeared or bailed out, 
Losing his good name and reputation for $2.5k, 
I doubt he would do such thing.

I'm sure there is a good reason behind all this
like others said "its totally out of character".

Tonto, before you waste your money just try and get hold of Dave. We all have including by the sounds of it the Mod's, all with no avail. 
Thanks for you offer's but this should be between us and the person who took our money. If he owes others are you going to pay them as well?
Tagit and the other boats, office etc are no longer at Westhaven, His office there has been taken over by another companynot associated with him. So can only assume he is running his business from home and the boats are at Bayswater? So making a few phone calls saved me a drive.
Sure this is all going to work out fine. In the end.
Time for just a normal day charter to chill out.
Worst part was the weather was great for the other dates put up
