As of February 12, 2018, The Phoenix of Hiroshima Project, Inc. has $24,271.97* of the total $87,000 needed to raise (salvage) the brave wooden boat gently from the Mokelumne River, bring her to shore, dry her out carefully to keep her intact, evaluate her condition and transport her to a shipyard for restoration. Thank you for our most recent donation–from Anna Meehan! (*There were also expenses since the last posted update: Annual fees to Secretary of State and domain names, plus costs of Phoenix plans and $2500 for Bishop Diving and Salvage for measurements.)
Full restoration is expected to take 2 years and cost from $500,000 to $1 million. See “RAISING THE PHOENIX” for details of where and how this will take place.
