"New" boat, needs LOTS of work!

Hurricane Irma  (or should I call it Irmageddon as my sister does) took everything away from my sister. Tracy is a self employed single woman who has been living on her boat in  St. John U.S.V.I for nearly 20 years.Tracy has had her own canvas buisness, for over 10 years and as a captain,  she chartered her 43' Gulfstar, took costomers out on her 18' trimaran for countless snorkling excursions.  But now, it's all gone! Her boat, her dingy and all of her belongings live at the bottom of the sea.  As I sit here feeling helpless, fighting my own battle of stage 3 breast cancer, I am asking for your help. My sister litterally has nothing.  Anything will help. I am offering her services as a captain, for anyone donating $3000,00. or more. The cost to replace everything is just too much to ask for. To purchase a simular boat, would cost about  $40,000.00.  Any contribution would be  appreciated. 

Tracy is currently living in our parents' house with no windows, plumbing, roof, electric, etc. and tons of mosquitos. So the faster we can get this going, the better.
I thank you from the center of my heart, Lori
