Ship Hector has been purchased by a non profit organization the intends to preserve Hector. We hope that this venture is successful, and that Ship Hector will continue to welcome vistitors for the forseeable future.

The following email was received by Clan Maclean Atlantic from the The Ship Hector Foundation:

"The Ship Hector Foundation exists to raise funds in support of the Ship Hector project. We've been there from the days of laying the keel, to the magnificent launch event and all her days since as a dockside attraction. We know that the money we've raised has contributed to a rebirth of sorts and, over the years, has generated millions of dollars in economic benefit for the town, county and province. The Hector is as important to our future as it was in 1773.

We're working to ensure the Hector Heritage Quay - and Pictou - is open for business. We need your help.

Please sign our petition and forward this to your friends. The more support we have the better our chances of turning the tide."

Sir Lachlan Maclean, Chief of Clan Maclean, visited Ship Hector in 2003
Clan Maclean participated financially in the reconstruction of the Hector, had a significant presence at the launching, and has a banner on the Avenue of Clans in Pictou. There is a page about the Ship Hector in the History section on this web site.

Clan Maclean Atlantic would like to ask all Macleans, and all with an interest in Scottish history in Atlantic Canada, or history in general in Atlantic Canada to sign the petition and to support the Ship Hector Foundation.
