|Batfish Memorial Foundation|
|The Batfish Memorial Foundation The Batfish Memorial Foundation was established to provide a means to ensure the USS Batfish was preserved as a memorial for all those Oklahomans who served, and continue to serve, to protect the freedoms of the United States. The BMF is a 501(c)3 organization with all donations being tax deductable.|
|Deck Replacement Complete Volunteers have replaced the deck. The entire boat is looking better with the new deck installed. This was a very labor intensive project. The Foundation supplied the wood and the needed hardware and any special tools. Our next step is to get the funds needed to sand blast and repaint the boat. Remember Lost Boats!|
|Boat tested for lead paint|
The boat has been tested for lead paint. The repainting company selected will have a good idea of what areas will require special precautions when sand blasting. The presents of lead paint makes the paint removal a more expensive endeavor.
|Henry Primeaux to help raise funds|
The War Memorial park has recieved a grant for updating. They have repaired and updated the parking lot and the foundation for the gangway leading to the boat.
|Capital Funds Drives|
The Batfish Memorial Foundation is in the formative stages of kicking off out "Paint the Gray Lady" capital funds drives for 2012 - 2013. This drive will be to collect funds for the sand blasting and painting of the USS Batfish. This will be a costly endevor, but is needed to be accomplished as soon as posssible. Sand blasting and painting are very involved and will require the use of a professional company along with many volunteer hours.
