Once completed, please make a minimum donation of $10 to Save Our Ship throughhttps://spring2action.razoo.com/Saveourship. All proceeds benefit the ship conservation fund.

Space is limited. Book today and take full advantage of this rare and unique opportunity to meet and observe the archaeologists and conservators as they record the ship timbers.

Early Alexandrians sunk the ship in the Potomac mudflats over 200 years ago. Archaeologists unearthed it, temporarily saving it from destruction. Now, we need your help to preserve this fragile vessel for future generations!
