Technically, clinker refers to a lapstrake hull built with iron rivets. Viking's hull is held together with thousands of iron rivets. We dare not let them rust away.

The need - Preservation

Viking’s thousands of rivets need to be cleaned and treated with a preservative. Several rivets must be replaced.


Consider rescuing a rivet, at $10.00 each, in honor of parents, spouse, children, grandchildren, yourself, or others. The possibilities are limitless.


Paypal allows you to choose the number of rivets to rescue. If you wish to honor someone, please use the "Add special instructions to the seller:" option, immediately below your shipping address on the "review your information" page of you paypal account.


Our downloadable form allows you to rescue rivets by check.

Thank you.
