The Bernard C. Webber, Coat of Arms
Motor Lifeboat CG36500 six inch bronze plaque
Using 20 lbs of scrap bronze and copper from the restoration of the
Motor Lifeboat CG36500, 14 six inch bronze plaques were made. One has
been placed on the WEBBER, and one will be attached to the 36500.
That leaves 12 available for purchase. Proceeds will go toward the maintenance
of the boat, which is owned by the Orleans Historical Society.
Each plaque is numbered and has a certificate of authenticity from the foundry.
Available at $500.00 each, shipping included.
