We are asking our supporters to PAY THEIR DONATION FORWARD to enable us to repair Paddle Steamer Curlip's hull. Your donation or purchase will help us pay back the money we have borrowed to purchase the shipment of Timber.
We needed to do this as the sourcing of ecologically sustainable first grade Australian Hardwood from private holdings, in lengths suitable for boat building is a very finite and limited resource that needed to be ordered nearly 6 months ago.
