Plea From Comanche 202 Foundation

Comanche 202 Foundation
Here it is folks, our most serious appeal letter to date. We need money.  Comanche will be going into dry dock next week and funds are desperately needed.  Stabbert Yacht and Ship (SYS) in Seattle where she'll be hauled-out has generous donated the dry dock for seven days and is giving us a 15% discount on materials and labor.  It doesn't get much better than that!  A hardy Bravo Zulu to Stabbert Yacht and Ship (SYS)!
Please read the attached appeal letter.  Also attached, you may be interested in the editorial in a Tacoma paper concerning Comanche's being evicted.  People in Tacoma are upset and displeased that we had to leave.  Comanche has been in Port Orchard, WA about 30 miles northwest of Tacoma enjoy a steady stream of visitors since July 16th.  We had more visitors in Port Orchard than we get in Tacoma all year!  And today we had discussions with the Port of Bremerton about a permanent home for Comanche.  Bremerton is a ship and sailor loving town.  We'll be in good company with the historic Vietnam period USN Tuner Joy. 
Photos attached are of Comanche leaving Tacoma and in Port Orchard this week.
Please consider giving to this monumental and absolutely essential project to 'Get Her Up There'!
Tax deductible donations can been sent to COMANCHE 202 FOUNDATION, 403 Garfield St. S., Tacoma, WA 98444  (253) 227-9678
