Restoring/Preserving Boats & Ships
All of us who enjoy sailing stand on the shoulders of seamen from time immemorial - and the gunnels of the vessels they sailed in. We could not pursue our sailing dreams without the knowledge and skills they have handed down to us. Fortunately, some of their venerable craft still exist; aboard them we can get a taste of sailing in times gone-by and try to imagine shipboard life in the days of wooden ships and iron men.
One way to demonstrate our gratitude is to help the volunteers and organizations willing to work today to restore and preserve these boats and ships of yesteryear. It's one way for modern sailors to give back a little of the great treasures we have received.
