Maintenance volunteers are needed mainly in the spring when we are prepping the Appledore schooners for the new season and in the fall when we are winterizing the ships. Maintenance volunteers may also be called upon occasionally during the sailing season. Duties may include tasks such as painting, rigging, woodworking, and general repair work. We often have a need for individuals with specialized skills such as welding, plumbing, electrical, and carpentry. Maintenance volunteers are given priority for passage-making opportunities.
