Grants or Funding for an Historic Restoration
(Boston, Massachusetts. )
Hi I am writing because someone gave me what turned out to be the “Winslow Tusitala”
It's listed in the Mystic Seaport Museum Libraries Winslow collection,
I have documentation along with an article written about her in 1945 issue of ‘Rudder’ magazine.
I've had a survey and she is mostly sound.
One estimate to restore her is a hundred thousand dollars.
That I do not have!
Can anyone give me any suggestions as to obtaining grants or funding or attests a friendly yard around Boston mass
