Dominion Tug enters phase two of the restoration project. In March of 2019 she will be hauled out for hull restoration.
A complete hull survey, including fastener inspections will be performed during this haul out.
$30,000 covers the tugboat assist, the haul out and yard time, and transportation back to Bremerton, WA. The entire haul out is estimated to last one week.
With this survey, the restorations road map will be developed and so begins the first step for Dominion Tug to return to operational condition.
Please help us save a piece of history by donating to this Go Fund Me campaign to save Dominion Tug.
Dominion, originally U.S. Army #LT-366, was launched by the Grays Harbor Shipbuilding Company of Hoquiam, Washington in May of 1944. She is one of 61 Miki class tugboats originally commissioned by the United States Army during World War II, and is the sole Pacific Northwest built Miki Class Tugboat to survive.
