Volunteer Teams Click Here – To Join Up!

We are on the home stretch of completing Matthew Turner!  We have done an amazing job so far. So, let us pull together and finish our ship.  We are looking for volunteers to join a specific TEAM, and work through to the end of that project, with a commitment of at least 1 day per week, preferably 2 – 3 days.

We will continue work on Matthew Turner through the rainy days this week and next, with joinery and propulsion and plumbing work onboard as well as at 60-C.

Direct communication and coordination between team members is encouraged.

We understand schedules vary, so letting your Team Members know if you cannot make it will allow us to plan the work to be done on any given day and cover your “shift”.
