Purchase hull timber


Did you know that rebuilding Schooner Independence will require approximately 10,000 linear feet of hull timbers? You can support our project by “purchasing” hull timbers at $20 per foot. Every foot makes a difference, so purchase as little or as much as your budget permits. Purchase timber online now via PayPal:


Or make a pledge by emailing pledge@theindependence.org and arranging payment. Learn about other ways to donate.

Terms and Conditions
Currency is Australian Dollar (AUD). Your “purchase” is a purely symbolic one. By "purchasing" hull timbers you are making a donation to Rebuild Independence Group Inc. (RIG). RIG does not currently have Australian Tax Office Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, so your donation is not currently tax deductible.  However if RIG achieves DGR status in the current financial year you will be notified by email and you may be able to claim an Australian tax deduction. We plan to acknowledge donor names and corresponding timber lengths on the wall of the future RIG boat shed in American River, although you may choose to remain anonymous. We reserve the right to contact you via email.
