Does your organization need a vessel for Great Lakes education purposes?

A 40-foot turn-of-the-century solid steel harbor tug boat, presently
dry-docked in Racine, Wisconsin, is available for donation to any charitable
organization with a Great Lakes education mandate. The DOROTHEA M. GEARY is
a vessel with a proud past. The world's first electrically welded vessel,
she was launched in July 1915 from Ashtabula Ohio and, over the years, has
served as a repair vessel for freighters, a repair launch and an Eagle Scout
training vessel. She has been owned for the last decade by Ned Dikmen,
publisher of Great Lakes Boating magazine. Significant investment in recent
years has included a new superstructure, a 671 Detroit Diesel, and a bow
thruster, among others. Some further fabrication work is needed. Interested
organizations and individuals should contact Ned Dikmen in Chicago at
312-266-8400 or ndikmen@greatlakesboating.com
