Now working all day and night Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th at Nelson's Marine, 1500 Ferry Point, Alameda, CA 94501. Click here for directions.
This weekend's work party to help complete the ship! Bottom painting, Saturday and Sunday.
Our first custom-built disaster relief and humanitarian aid boat is bound for the South China Sea, commissioning for sea trials early May.
This is a 57 foot steel sailing trawler - with volunteer crews and medical professionals, this single vessel will be able to carry enough food, water and medical supplies to keep 1,000 survivors alive after a coastal disaster with fresh water, food and medical supplies. We are an entirely volunteer organization.
Our construction is accelerating, but we need help! We need volunteers to help with carpentry, plumbing, electrics, painting and welding! If you can help, here's a list of items we are trying to source to fully commission.
LATEST: Now recruiting a VOLUNTEER CAPTAIN to accept a long-term contract to cruise the South China Sea mid 2014, to join the vessel any time from now. You maintain the boat in the condition we give her to you and respond to IRG missions - and we'll help you raise funds for Thunderbird 1's cruise! Note: All IRG captains, operatives staff and board of directors are unpaid volunteers. Captain's license not necessary, we're looking for cruising experience mixed with passion for our cause, resourcefulness, independence and competence. Medical background a plus.
Message Captain Ray if you're interested (email@example.com) or sign into this Group and express your interest! Feel free to call 408-256-1290 to discuss.
