I agree with Ron... I don't think Richard Branson would be interested in the SSUS... heck, he's even the guy that funded the high-speed catamaran that "broke" the SSUS transatlatic record for a "Passenger Ship" and now technically holds the Blue Riband/Hales Trophy. (Though whether his "ship" was a "passenger vessel" in the vein of what the Blue Riband is about is open to question.)

Given that I think most would agree that the ideal situation would be "rescue" or "preservation" of the SSUS as part of American maritime heritage, I'd think an American billionaire would be optimal. However, ANY multi-billionaire from ANY country committed to the SSUS rescue would be fine with me!!! (...just don't think it would be Branson)
