Come out and learn the skills of a WWII merchant seaman while helping preserve a historic vessel. A deck volunteer will work on steel preservation, operate winches and booms, and various other maintenance & logistical tasks that keep the SS Jeremiah O'Brien a premier museum and artifact from an important era in American history.
No experience is required, but basic seamanship skills are helpful. Deck department volunteers that hold a MMC licence or credential as a master, mate or seaman are always needed. Our crew is composed of people from all levels of experience and have a willingness to pass along their knowledge and skills. We are a tightly nit small community of volunteers.
The Jeremiah O'Brien is an fully functional, living museum that sails. As a tribute to both those that served in World War II and specifically the Merchant Mariners who risked it all to deliver cargo to Normandy for the D Day invasion.
