Historic vessel restoration in Thomaston, ME USA



 Min stay requested: at least a week



  • Description


    We are in the final stages of a four year rebuild of the place, and are looking for help to make it over the finish line. Boatbuilding experience is not a requirement; our ideal volunteers will be intelligent open-minded people with a great sense of humor, adaptability, and a commitment to doing a good job no matter the task. People who enjoy communal living, and are eager to learn are encouraged to get in touch. This is a very exciting phase of the rebuild (we are scheduled to launch in June 2024!), so you can sure to be entertained, and busy!

    We have met some of the most amazing, talented and diverse people through workaway, and we look forward to continuing the trend. Please be in touch if you have interest and or questions.
