Almost all people with physical disabilities or age-related mobility issues can NEVER fully participate in the wonderful and documented curative activity of recreational fishing, sailing and boating because of inability to board or have  lavatory access.   The idea of boating  can be overwhelming to wheelchair, crutch or cane users and their disabilities are seen as insurmountable. SRMHF's mission is to improve the quality of life of those with disabilites...the servicemen and women who have been wounded mentally or physically over the course of their duties and others by providing access to boating, fishing, and sailing aboard mid-size boats that have been specially engineered with adaptive boating equipment. Working together we are hopeful that we can give the priceless freedom of the wind, water, and spirit to the warriors in our society who have to overcome adversity every day.
