The Boston Globe has a nice post about the now 69 year old, 36 foot, wooden hull, motor surfboat Bernie Webber and his pick-up crew used to rescue 32 crew members trapped on the stern of an oil tanker, SS Pendleton, that had broken in half in a storm, and the people who restored and care for it.
The story of this rescue was told in a book and is being made into a movie.
I have it on good authority that the organization that maintains the boat could use some support.
They are planning to take the 36500 to the commissioning of USCGC James in Boston, 8 August. http://www.uscg.mil/acquisition/newsroom/updates/PhotoUpdate080415.asp
