Looking for a good home…
Good friends, volunteers, helpers and supporters.
This year our sailboat “Jenny Kruse” turns 76 years old. His life and activity have been spent 65 years in Denmark, Sweden and Finland and the last 11 years in Estonia. The cool ship in 2011. Arrived in Pärnu in the summer of the year, no one could have predicted exactly how to do missionary work in Estonia with such a dignified wooden ship. Throughout this time we have been available to various groups, societies, families, congregations, schools and friends of the sea. We are grateful that we could host unique and adventurous camps like “4:12”, “Fathers and Sons”, “Fathers & Daughters” etc. Our cross sail has been seen in Gdansk, Rostock, Riga as well as in Tallinn, Romassaare, Ringsu, Kihnu and Pärnu.
We have been part of an exciting adventure to showcase Maryland’s historical marine culture and the Good Message of Christ.
We are grateful for every helping hand, euro donated as well as every co-driver. Without you we wouldn’t have sailed so far!
When we got the boat we knew it was a wooden boat constantly in the water and needed repair, maintenance and attention. We have done it in the best way possible all those years. By now we have reached a stage where we understand that further maintenance and keeping the ship running requires much greater capacity than we (NGO Jenny Kruse) have it.
Last year our ship had a more thorough pre-repair inspection which confirmed our fears that several remote parts needed replacing (some on the arch, masts, some hullboards, etc. ). In addition, the ship’s main engine also finished his work last year.
We have come to a stretch of road in a way where we have to make one of three choices: a) take the ship out of the water and do its larger-scale and long-term capital repairs; b) sell the ship; c) demolish the ship
The board of NGO Jenny Kruse has decided that we agree to resell the ship for 1€ to anyone interested in maintaining this unique base and making it seaworthy.
This decision has been made considering the avoidable options and the possible cost of resources.
Please let me know if you became interested in the ship, or if you know someone who would be willing to take care of the ship or have any other ideas on how to go forward with Jenny.
