The Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild is currently seeking Vessel Preservation Interns This is an excellent opportunity for aspiring professional mariners to acquire practical vessel repair and maintenance experience. Working in conjunction with PSPG’s shipwright and committed volunteer membership, interns learn a broad array of skills, from plank replacement and caulking, to welding and blacksmithing. Prior repair and maintenance experience is not required, though it is a plus.
Housing is provided aboard one of the Guild vessels, as is a weekly stipend. Interns also receive membership in the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild, and will be eligible to sail aboard Gazela during her 2015 sailing season. Positions are available immediately and running through March 2015, with a minimum time commitment of one month. The possibility exists to transition to a position during Gazela’s haulout in spring 2015.
