Terms and Conditions
Currency is Australian Dollar (AUD). Your “purchase” is a purely symbolic one. By "buying" hull planks you are making a donation to Rebuild Independence Group Inc. (RIG). Donations larger than $2 are tax deductible with the Australian Tax Office. We plan to acknowledge donor names and corresponding timber lengths on a wall of the Independence Boathouse in American River, although you may choose to remain anonymous. We reserve the right to contact you via email.
