Lotus Cover-up 500x

The MV LOTUS Foundation has kicked off their Deck Replacement Project and is asking for your help!   We received a Washington State Heritage Capital Projects grant that requires a l/3 match, so we are in full fund-raising mode.

The first phase of the project was to enclose the upper deck – The Cover-up.  This will keep the boat weather-tight during the next phase, which includes the careful removal of the plywood that covers the original fir decking.

We are just managing to cover our operations expenses like moorage, insurance, and pump-outs through current funds, but we are requesting help to raise funds for the required grant match of $30,000 toward the deck project.  Every little bit helps! 

We would be very grateful if you choose to lend some of your financial support to us to complete this important project.  Thank you! 


Thank you, on behalf of the all-volunteer crew of the MV LOTUS Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
