Restore the Earl L. Milan

The workhorse of the fleet is showing her 35 years of age!  Built originally in 1974 as the Fishin’ and Fiddlin’ for Earl Milan the founder of ARAMCO blinds this 47 foot all aluminum sport fisher has been the mainstay of our small boat fleet since being donated 1993. 

She is in desperate need of updated equipment.  Currently she needs:

  • Repalcement of her main engines, two 8v71 Detroit Diesels. It has been 13 years since they were last overhauled. The engines are 40 years old. The estimated cost is $60,000.

  • A new marine sanitation system, head and pump out tank to make her environmentally friendly, Currently she has no Head! The estimated cost is $5,000.

  • A total interior refit, the 1970’s interior has passed the point of dingy. The estimated cost is $8,000.
