Anokijig Ahoy!

By now, many of you are familiar with the crown jewel of the Anokijig fleet, the Allegheny. This beautiful launch was made possible through the generosity of Ernie and Bernie Styberg and we can't thank them enough!

We do our best to keep the Allegheny looking in tip-top shape and as we were cleaning and polishing the hull, we noticed some areas that probably need attention.

We'll be the first to admit, we're no experts on boats, so we don't know how serious this situation is, but we suspect it's pretty common. The cracks all appear to be surface paint of some kind flaking off and they all appear below the waterline.

If you have any background or expertise in boats and would be willing to volunteer your time and talent to help keep the Allegheny in perfect working order, we'd love to hear from you.

The Allegheny is currently in the Anokijig Drydock, which is a temperature-controlled building very close to Anokijig, in which storage space was generously donated. Please give us a call at Camp and let us know if you can help us keep the Allegheny in tip-top shape. Our phone number is 920-893-0782. Thanks for all your support!
