Help us restore a historic ship in the Richmond Shipyard, the SS Red Oak Victory a 1944 Boulder Class cargo ship! We specifically need volunteers who have experience with painting steel and who is unafraid of heights.

The SS Red Oak Victory needs constant attention! Metal ship plus air and moisture = rust! We need to constantly defend against rust by chipping rust blisters, painting sealant, primer, and then painting.

We are restoring and renovating this floating artifact so that it will be here for many generations to come! Rescued from rust and decay from the mothball fleet in Suisun Bay the ship is a welded steel metal ship on the San Francisco Bay in contact with the elements and is constantly in need of painting. Work would be done on metal and steel throughout the ship including in the Engine Room.

If you are interested in more information about us, please check out our website http://redoakvictory.us/support-us/volunteer/ or contact me: mandy@redoakvictory.us

Looking forward to working with you!

RMA will make you feel welcome whether you seek to develop professional skills, deepen your own personal interests or just want to feel more connected to the past.
