           The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly has pledged matching funds to the Kodiak Maritime Museum in the amount of $25,000. The assembly is lending its support to the museum's efforts to turn the fishing vessel Thelma C into an interpretive display near Saint Paul harbor.

            The assembly has agreed to provide financial support on condition that the state legislature comes through with funding first. The museum has requested $140,000 of funding from the state. Grant funding from the Rasmuson Foundation has also been applied for.

The executive director of the Kodiak Maritime Museum is Toby Sullivan. He said that if the state and borough funding comes through, it will help pay for turning the old wooden seiner into an interpretive display near Oscar's Dock.

            The Thelma C is also an historical artifact from those days in Kodiak.

            The museum's plan also includes some "futuristic" elements:

            The Thelma C display is the museum's biggest project to date and work has been on-going for several years. Sullivan said that the assembly's matching funds would definitely help get the project "down the road a bit."
