We need your help to get Alma Doepel off her restoration barge
by the target date of 30 November 2020
The restoration team is on schedule, in spite of COVID-19, and the final stages of work on the hull are well in hand.
To achieve our return to water target date we need funds to complete two major tasks on the hull to make it watertight; caulking the hull plank seams, and fitting of the underwater propulsion elements; port and starboard propellers and shafts, and the bow thruster tunnel.
The Caulking project started some time ago to purchase quality oakum and glues to seal the hull plank seams. We are closing in on the $25,000 target with $5,000 to go.
The Propulsion project pays for supply and fitting of two propellers ($19,000), their shafts ($10,000), and the bow thruster tunnel in the bow of the ship ($5,000). Total cost $34,000.
The two projects, totalling $39,000must be completed to return Almato the water.
With your help we can meet our targets for both projects and see Almaafloat again within the next 100 days
