The “Queen of the Great Lakes” needs your assistance! Time and weather have taken their toll on this Grand Lady and she is need of serious repairs and painting; she needs a bit more than a new coat of lipstick! Here is your chance to be a part of getting her back into “Ship-shape”.

The scope of the work requires all exterior surfaces be sandblasted, primed and painted—stem to stern, top to waterline. In her current condition, she has large amounts of peeling and faded paint, rust, and deteriorated deck surfaces. It has been determined that a full renovation at one time is required and that a piecemeal process will not be in her best long term interest. We are seeking multiple sources for funding this important endeavor. The entire project will require over $365,000.

NO single ship has had a greater impact on the United States of America, the Great Lakes Region and Michigan. She truly won WWII for the United States and continued to serve the country for a total of 62 years.

She saved and served many - we owe her no less.
