WWF was began in 1998 and it has been an up and down road ever since. First we purchased the vessel pictured and owned the vessel for 8 years. She was the perfect humanitarian ship; she was a RO-RO, LO-LO, Heavy lift ship. I was the lead person involved with the US Maritime Administration and also lead in the day to day activities of the vessel restoration and procurements necessary.
I am accountable to a Board of Directors.
We sold REVIVAL #1 and decided to purchase a smaller vessel. I went to NZ and was later joined by my son. We purchased REVIVAL #2 and under my supervision, voyaged across the Pacific and thru the Panama Canal to Macapa Brazil. From there we traveled up the Amazon River 900 miles, without a pilot. I was Captain of the vessel from Raratonga, Cook Island until we finally arrived in Alabama, USA. I was on the vessel continually for one and half year. And this is where she lies presently. She has had extensive repairs and upgrades performed on the vessel.
Since we have returned to the states, my son has achieved his 100 ton Captain’s license.
We are waiting on what the future may bring, with great expectations.
