How are we going to do it?

1. Repair the boats - We have set up Fiberglass Boat Repair Shops under Tents in McLeans Town and Sweetings Cay to repair boat hulls damaged from Hurricane Dorian a Category 5 Storm.

2. Buy new outboard motors - 90 % of all fishing boats in the East End were damaged from Hurricane Dorian. We are repairing boats and buying engines for Fishermen who have lost their livelihood. 

3. Use Local suppliers- OBS Marine has stepped forward to provide new Mercury Engine motors at the best possible prices.
