Our 19 foot Cleanup Boat

A true trash to treasure story.  Kris Kincaid had an old boat that was in need of repairs and Wounded Nature was in need of a trailerable small boat to scout cleanup areas and participate in the cleanups.

Thanks to a number of vendors and our volunteers we have been able to convert this to into a usable tool that will improve our planet.

Collectively, we were able to take this:

and turn it into this:

DSCF0185

Boat update April, 2016 – after numerous problems with our Mariner motor and many requests for assistance to Mercury for assistance to no avail, we contacted Yamaha Outboards.  Yamaha immediately said they would help us and provided a replacement motor.  Hanckel Marine stepped in and provided the labor and changed out the motor for us.
