Grants or Funding for an Historic Restoration

by Brian
(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

Thanks

Brian
