Thank you!

Here's a big thank you to everyone who helped our campaign to save Bertha.  Weather you supported the campaign through direct financial support, helped us spread the word, or shared your pictures and memories - each action made a big difference.  

Unfortunately, we didn't reach our financial goal.  All contributions here on Indiegogo will be refunded automatically.   

Darren continues his search for a solution for Bertha.  He's currently looking to fund the work through a personal loan.  If anyone is interested in lending the money or a portion of the money needed to get her in the water, please get in touch at tugboatbertha@gmail.comand we'll follow up by phone.

Regardless of the outcome here on Indiegogo, if you wish to financially support his efforts to save Bertha, we ask that you contact us via email at

Bertha Updates

We have a few updates for you this week...  We're close to hitting the $5,000 mark on Bertha's Indiegogo's campaign.  Although we are a bit far from the overall goal, there is still lots of time left to go.  So please take a minute and share the link with your friends and networks.  Your help in spreading the word is much appreciated!

No news yet on getting an unrestricted copy of the NY1 interview to share - but it is in the works.

Our friend Will Van Dorp has written another beautiful photo essay.  Check out that essay here Bertha update on Tugster.

Also, we're received some more photos of Bertha from her time in NY Harbor from Eric Fischer.  Thanks Eric.  Here are a few of his Bertha shots...

And one more photo - Darren recently dug up Bertha's original plaque from her construction by Sir W.G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co, Newcastle on Tyne, England, in 1925!
