The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport has started a crowdfunding campaign to help with some much needed upgrades. The Seaport says on their indiegogo page that recent Coast Guard inspections have found some of the fasteners are showing signs of corrosion. Lady Washington needs to be fitted with a corrosion protection system that would greatly extend the life of all her fittings and fasteners: the metal bits that hold her together. At the same time we would like to replace and upgrade the battery banks which provide power to the vessel when her generators aren’t running. The current batteries have done their duty for eight years, and they’re pretty tired.

We’ve started a crowdfunding project at Indiegogo to raise $14,113 for these upgrades. Please join other Lady Washington fans and supporters and help us keep this magnificent vessel sailing for the next generation! Watch our video and donate now! Our fundraising deadline is October 10.
