Help the Sea Scouts Repair Their Boat

The Sea Scout Ship Gryphon is out of the water and replacing approximately 72 square feet of hull-plate, re-building the shaft packing around the rudder, as well as cleaning and re-painting the entire hull of the boat. This is a great opportunity for the youth to learn a lot of new skills like the proper use of power-tools and how to apply the special paints of the maritime industry.

Your funding will go towards the high cost of the supplies required to complete this project. Examples of these supplies are the steel hull plate, paint, boat yard fees, sandpaper, sanders, and hiring a certified welder. We expect that this will take about two weeks and nearly 2,000 man hours of labor.  We have estimated that this haul-out will cost us approximately $35,000!

The Sea Scout Ship Gryphon is a part of Sea Scouts, B.S.A, a program for young adults. Our program teaches nautical skills, teamwork, and leadership to tomorrow's leaders. Our main vessel is ship T-439, a 65 foot Army transport vessel from the Korean War. Aboard the ship, the youth learn all about how to maintain and operate the vessel with their fellow ship mates. We own many small boats for training including sailboats, whale boats, canoes, kayaks, and even a new ski-boat!

Please help us reach our goal and help us keep our training vessel afloat for many more generations of youth leaders!
