 Why I am asking for donations: During this time of economic turmoil, it has become more and more expensive and diffcult to pay for the upkeep and maintenance of this website.  We are retired and on a fixed income and both I and my wife are in our 70's.  To add to the impact of this time, our son has recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and his employer has sidelined him without any benefits and forced him to resign.  He worked for them for over 18 years and now has no income or benefits, from ironically, one of the largest medical transport corporations in the world.  We are paying his rent and utilities which amounts to about half of our retirement income. 

If you appreciate this website and it has helped you in your boat building business, or as a boat owner, please consider donating to keep this site on-line. I have added a donate button to my webstore page at  Donations are through PAYPAL.

See Paypal fees:

PAYPAL charges a 2.89% fee, but the rest goes to my account. Please donate a minimum of $5.00 USD
