Call for Volunteers!

By Captain Korie

Hello Local Adventuress Volunteers!

I hope everyone is having a great winter. We are tackling more projects this winter on Adventuress than I’ve seen undertaken including all new framing in the port forward section of the ship, a new stem, new focsle bunks, lots of deck brightwork and a new anchor configuration. If you haven’t stopped by the ship, come on by. If you have, thanks so much for your help!

I know that we’ve still got 7 weeks left of winter maintenance before our sail date of April 26th, but the crunch is on. There are a lot of great projects started that need to be completed including a big push at the end of the month to get the hull painted and deck put back together in anticipation of splashing on April 1st. Up until that time, we have lots of deck furniture to varnish, blocks to assemble, rigging to tackle and shipwrights to assist. We are slowly losing our wonderful full-time volunteer crew to other springtime jobs and could really use any time and help you can provide. You are mo
re than welcome any day of the week and towards the end of the month we may need some weekend painting help.

If you can come help you can either RSVP to me or just show up anytime!

And, don’t forget our upcoming work weekends: March 13/14 and April 10/11!

Thanks for being such a great part of our community!
