Dear <<First Name>>
There is a frenzy of activity down at the shed as shipwrights "steam" ahead replacing the last remaining frames over the next few weeks. Watch in awe as our shipwrights build tailor made frames from laminates. Watch as they steam, bend, glue, shape, paint and bolt these huge frames into place.
You are invited to the Alma Doepel Restoration
Open Week during Victoria's Seniors Week All welcome
Friends of Alma Doepel are invited to come down and take part in a tour of the restoration.
We are open from 11am to 4pm Monday to Sunday except Friday 12 October as that is Alma's Birthday Dinner at the Royal Yacht Club Victoria.

How you can help. The Alma Doepel Restoration project still needs to raise $1.2 million dollars to complete the job.
So many people have already donated so much to this project enabling it to come a long way. The project has also received much in-kind support through donation of services, materials, tools and labour. The project has come this far because of this support.
There is still more to do, and it is worth it!
Funds are still needed needed to complete the re-planking of Alma's hull so she can go back in the water.
Donations can be made direct to: Alma Doepel Supporters Club Bank Account
and send the deposit confirmation to me with your contact details and you will be sent the CD. email@example.com
