    Pledge $35 or more About $35

    Our thanks, plus a limited edition 5x7 picture frame made from reclaimed deck planks. As with the bookmark above, these frames will be sourced from mahogany strips removed during the deck restoration.

Because of the limited number of deck strips available, this reward will be limited to 100.

    An upgrade of our thanks in person when you visit Laurel...but this reward includes either two-dozen oysters or four-dozen clams (or some combination of the two) plus two cold drinks on her newly installed deck.

  5. Select this reward

    Pledge $90 or more About $90

    Improve your shucking skills with this unique hand-crafted oyster shucking knife made from reclaimed Laurel mahogany deck planks.

    Each handle will start out as a sanded block of wood that is hand-turned on a lathe then hand-rubbed with a food-safe finish. After, a stainless steel New Haven-style blade (hint: these are the best because they have a raised edge for easier opening) will be added for years of durability.

    Each oyster knife will come with a certificate of origin, our thanks and a handy how-to shuck guide.

  6. Select this reward

    Pledge $145 or more About $145

    Our thanks, plus an 11x14 hand-crafted wood frame. As this is a larger size frame, the wood will be reclaimed from Laurel's covering boards which are the "planks" at the edges of the deck.
    These are very rustic and each frame will include glass and a backer. A limited-edition imprint plus numbering will be added on the back. Because of the limited amount of wood available, only 25 frames are available.

  7. Select this reward

    Pledge $250 or more About $250

    Our thanks, and here's your chance to become a plank-owner!

    As a bit of history, those around a ship while it was being built in "the old days" were considered plank owners. Not too many wooden ships are being built today and the opportunity to become a plank owner is extremely rare.

    Each plank owner's name will be engraved onto the underside of a new deck plank. We'll make sure to take photos of the process and capture your plank during installation.

    In addition, we'll send you a section of the old deck with your name engraved, a certificate of thanks stating you are officially a plank owner and a diagram of the deck showing exactly where your plank was installed.

    Our thanks, and the ONLY deck beam with Laurel's official United States Coast Guard documentation number (141134). This 18-foot long white oak beam is located in the center of the boat and measures 9-inches high by 6 inches wide. Her official registration number was hand carved in giant numbers in 1904 as required by the USCG when her hull was lengthened.

    A video of the beam's removal and a copy of the original builder's certificate (circa 1904) will be printed on acid-free paper, along with our endless thanks and whatever other cool stuff we can find.

    Local shipping by truck included. Shipping available anywhere in world, priced accordingly to actual costs.
