All Hands on Deck Update 4/25/16

We had a great experience this week.

We started on the second side of the boat.

A very special THANK YOU to our product sponsor:  Flex Seal

We are using Flex Seal products for various aspects of the project.  Flex Seal comes in various colors and our artist Susie Q is using it for the background colors to visually enhance the plastic debris that was collected during beach cleanups. The trash is being used on the boat to repurpose our Cuban refugee boat into a work of art.

To affix the plastic to the boat, we are using Flex Shot

Flex Seal is excited about our project.  So much, that they came out to film for a future commercial.

Susie Q discusses the process for Flex Seal

Casey talks about the benefits of Flex Seal Products

We had lots of help thanks to Girl Scouts of South Florida including Troops 10317 and 11110.

The Girls Scouts also learned about managing Storm Water to avoid pollution

We also started on the back of the boat and the spelling out of All Hands on Deck.

So many Black Straws Found on the Beach

 We are talking to different organizations about a permanent home for the boat but nothing is confirmed yet.  Do you have any ideas?  Contact us.
