'Ports of Jersey' please find Elektra a permanent mooring in Jersey to become an educational hub and holiday let
We need your help to find our tugboat Elektra a permanent mooring in Jersey. She has been dazzled by Jersey artist Ian Rolls and we will be instructing other Jersey artists to use her as their canvas. We would like to offer her as a holiday let to locals and tourists with the odd events taking place now and then. Currently we only have till she has been refurbished to stay where she is. If you would like to see her remain in Jersey and operate as a holiday let then please sign this petition including any comments or suggestions for location.
Some might have the view that an ex USA army tugboat has nothing to do with Jersey. In principal this is correct however she has been in Jersey for over 20 years and has now been transformed into a work of art. She could offer Jersey a unique attraction for tourists and also locals. She comes with plenty of fascinating history that we would love to share with all those who will listen.
We need to demonstrate to 'Ports of Jersey' that there is interest from both locals and tourists in providing her for let so please share this petition to everyone even if they are not in Jersey but think it is a good idea.
Once in operation as a holiday let we will be able to raise much needed revenue to enable Elektra to set sail to sea with passengers. In order to allow anyone on board we need to comply with certain health and safety regulations which will require a lot of investment. We feel the best way to achieve our final goal of enabling school children and others on board to learn about WW1, Dazzle Ships, tugboats is by using the holiday let income to re-invest in Elektra and purchase the necessary equipment and provide the correct access so that she conforms to strict regulations. It is going to be a long process but one we believe children of the future and Jersey will benefit from.
Thank you for your support in advance
