SAVE ROCKAWAY'S DRAGON BOAT

Her name is "The DRAGONFLIES' BANQUET''.
She was designed by Poppa Neutrino and built in the 1990's. She has lived, worked and played in Jamaica Bay for the last 18 years. Many of you have seen her, some have had adventures on board , others have only heard the stories.

Sadly, after an easy winter docked at Thai Rock on Bch.92nd, the crazy 60mph wind storm in early April tore up her moorings, flipped the dock over and smashed her relentlessly into the pilings, even while Captain and crew tried in vain to protect her.After tying the pieces back together and despairing overthe time , labor and expense of fixing her, we decided to take the right attitude and commit to rebuilding and upgrading all the elements that we had dreamed of streamlining.So we are appealing to all our friends, followers, neighbors and fellow seafarers to chip in whatever you can to help us tow her , take her out and rebuild her in time for the summer season. THANKYOU in advance for helping to keep this Rockaway Icon afloat and giving her new life.
