Tom Pamperin directs book sales funds to Port Aransas boatbuilding museum

Tom Pamperin is an enthusiastic amateur boatbuilder, small boat cruiser and boating writer, and his book Jagular Goes Everywhere¬†seems to get regular sales. Here’s a link to buy the book.

He’s just decided to donate funds from his book sales from now until the 9th April to Farley Boat Works, the local boatbuilding museum and sponsor of the annual Port Aransas plyWooden Boat Festival.

Here’s what he says:

‘The town was hit very hard by Hurricane Harvey, and I’d like to do what I can to help them recover. I’ve sailed the Texas coast a lot and made lots of good friends there, and I’d like to see the interest in wooden boats continue down there – they’ve had a good thing going on.’
