Save to Favorites

American Victory Ship

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Seeking personnel with carpentry skills to help restore weather doors, officer bunks, and various other projects on the American Victory WWII Ship. Looking forward to seeing you aboard.

The S/S American Victory was launched in 1945 and served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Today, the American Victory Ship is open daily to the public for tours. As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, we are truly a grass roots effort and rely on our amazing volunteers!

A 75 year old ship requires plenty of ongoing maintenance and repairs. Some of these areas we need help in are: welding, plumbing, engineering and electrical work, chipping, painting, sanding, miscellaneous deck work, special projects, and more.
