Help Elvira Sail Again!

Carmans River Maritime Center has received a $28,000. Matching grant from the Gardner Foundation to bring Elvira back to sailing condition. By October 2016 we need to raise $14,000. in monetary donations and $14,000. worth of volunteer labor (credited at $26.45/hr.) in order to receive the Gardner grant money. You can help, obviously with financial contributions, large or small, but also by volunteering your time. As of now we’re at the Boat Shop every Saturday morning from 9:00 to noon and can use all the help we can get. It’s mostly simple stuff, sanding, scraping, painting, etc., but will involve some skilled work along the way (spar building for example) that will give you the opportunity to hone your skills under the guidance of experienced boat builders. So let us know how you can help. Phone us at (631) 286-2700 or email us at info@carmansrivermaritime.org .
