The Accessible Waters Boat
Our boat, the Rum Runner II, was retrofitted in 2021 to include an opening on the loading side with standardized ramp able to support wheelchairs or other mobility aids for ease of boarding. Our boat is fitted with safety locks for wheelchairs, and the adjustable seating allows us to support a range of on-board mobility aids. A canopy provides protection from sun and rain as needed and our boat is fully safety stocked. Our artwork was created by our team member Sarah, and then put together for our awesome wrap and signage by O'Hare Signs. Standardized Personal Floatation Devices and equipment for fishing has been provided curtesy of support from the Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s Outdoor Fund.

Then take a look at some of our kind corporate donors who have made contributions to our organization. We are grateful to the kind support of these groups and many other private donations - with this support we aim to ensure our services are both physically and financially accessible to those with disability.
