Adopt a rib

adopt a rib

There are 38 ribs on each side of Stormvogel, the last sailing cargo ship of the ABC Islands. Many of these have to be replaced. For $50, you can adopt a rib of the boat and have your name inscribed into the wood. These pieces will be permanently installed in the new frame of Stormvogel. There is a 23-character limit for names submitted (this includes spaces).

Adopt-A-Rib is a chance to honor your family, give a unique gift to a friend and support the preservation of Bonaire’s maritime heritage. All proceeds from this fundraiser go directly into the restoration of the historic ship. To adopt a rib, contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Pound some nails!

Nails In Glass

Facts About Bronze Nails:

Stormvogel will need thousands of bronze nails to fasten new planking and decking.

• Each nail costs 22 cents.

• There are 113 nails in this glass.

• That equals a $25 contribution.

• Silicon bronze, while expensive, combines strength and corrosion resistance.

• Your donations will help restore the last of the sailing cargo ships of the ABC Islands, Stormvogel.

• Plus... you will personally have the chance to pound some nails in Stormvogel when planking begins.
