experience. The goal of the selected preservation treatment is to retain and preserve the historic form and fabric of the vessel to the greatest ex- tent possible. We have a plan of work that we are following above and below deck and we work on Fridays from 0800 to 1300 hrs. The work sched- ule will soon increase as we near completion date. The Port of Los Angeles has provided

great support to preserve the boat by developing a preservation plan that involves the vessel and the building that will house it funded by the Port. They have provided a land berth for it, utilities and soon will provide a large canopy to cover it while work continues in a protected environment. Work has begun on the water cut back south of FS 112 and adjacent to where the boat museum will be. This will provide anchorage for historic vessels. The US Battleship Iowa will be coming to the Port in June and become a floating museum located just north of FS 112. I hope that you have “caught my drift”

with this article. We need support from our active and retired members in the way of volunteers to help work on the boat and donors who will be rec- ognized for their contribution in the new boat mu- seum. Donor levels start at the ”Firefighter” $100 and go up from there to “Diver” $500; “Mate”

$1,000; “Engineer” $2,000; “Pilot” $3,000; “Cap- tain” $5,000; “Chief” $10,000. How about the many members who

were assigned to the old boat over the years get- ting involved or those interested in preserving the history of the LAFD (Your history). If nothing else, come down and tell a few stories about your experiences. Those of you who are interested in supporting us with the boat project can come to the Harbor Museum at Old Fire Station 36 on a Saturday or email me direct at frankwborden@ You can also call and leave a message at 323 464 2727. Time to get serious. Our clock is ticking.
