Friends Good Will is a replica of a 19th Century vessel, whose design and name are taken from a real ship that was built in Michigan in 1810 and has quite a story. The job is volunteer, so there won't be any booty involved, but if you love the water this is the ideal Summer job.

Before you ask...Yes, there will be a 2021 sailing season. Friends Good Will was in operation for nearly all of the 2020 season, switching from individual ticket sales to chartering the entire ship for tours.

So, if you want to play captain Jack Sparrow, if your life, your love and your lady is the sea, and you are a true Michigan lover of the Great Lakes, come aboard, matey!
