A couple of years ago I thought up a sailing trivia game as an after-supper amusement for the annual sailing club dinner. It seemed to work OK and was sufficiently successful for me to be asked to do it again the following year. 
It could be easily developed into an old fashioned family board game (do people still play these?)  I offered it gratis to the RNLI who were quite interested, but concluded it's appeal (to racing sailors) was too specialised to have  sufficient "mass appeal" to their general customer base to warrant the investment. 
 
I still think it is an idea with potential and if it could be commercialised somehow I would be happy to offer profits after development/production costs have been covered to the RNLI. If anybody knows a well financed person/company who might be attracted to the idea of developing such a game (which would not cost much) in order to donate the proceeds to the RNLI, I would be grated for ideas!  (PM me.)
