The Marco Polo Project may be complete sooner than expected thanks to a $20,000 grant from the provincial government.

Ed Doherty, Minister of Supply and Services, presented Project President Barry Ogden with the money so the Ship can be finished this summer.

The Boat is currently being worked on in the West Side, but the masts, rigging, bow sprit and deck can't be completed until the Marco Polo is moved to it's permanent location, which has yet to be decided.
