Update / Help the R/V Hero Come Home
(or at least a few pieces of the vessel...)
Artist's concept of Hero (NSF Drawing from the Antarctic Journal, May/June 1968)
As previously mentioned on this page, Charles Lagerbom and the Antarctican Society have arranged with DNR to attempt to recover salvage items and transport them to the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine. But...there are costs of $5000 involved to transport what may be up to six tons of material...and we are looking for contributions.
The flyer below was prepared by the Antarctican Society; click here for a PDF version.
Note...enough funds were raised to cover the expected costs of artifact transportation to Maine, but donations to the Antarctican Society are always needed and welcome.
Next and final news: Goodbye.
