Join Vessel Manager, Nathaniel Howe, and Lead Shipwright , Brian Johnson of Ocean Bay Marine, as they lead a ship-oriented Lightship Work Party.  Volunteer participants tackle necessary projects and repairs on Lightship No. 83 “Swiftsure.”  Wear clothes that can get dirty.  This opportunity is perfect for volunteers to become familiar with lightship and to share the excitement with others.

NOTE: Meet on tugboat Arthur Foss, and dress appropriate for getting dirty and staying warm.  Bring snacks for midway-break.  Coffee provided.

Work Parties get you into maritime heritage and sometime grease or sawdust at the Historic Ships Wharf in Lake Union Park. Join other volunteers aboard the Arthur Foss, Lightship #83, and other vessels for hard work (at times), excellent company (most often) and good will (always).

Please Use CONTACT FORM to “register.” Complete the volunteer application form for first-time NWS volunteers.
