Dylan's Raffle - Custom Made Dinghy

John and Toby Heisey of Rye, have donated a twelve foot flat bottomed rowing skiff John made to be raffled off to benefit the Carpenter family. Dylan Carpenter, Mimi and Steven’s fifteen year old son is fighting a recurrent cancer, RMS (Rhabdomyosarcoma). All proceeds will be donated directly to the Carpenter family.

John and Steve grew up together in Rye. Toby has known Mimi from O2 Yoga’s mothership studio was still in Rye. Toby has always loved and admired Mimi. They have followed Dylan’s story since Dylan’s first diagnosis at the age of twelve. Toby and John feel the Carpenter’s give so much to their community and to others, they would follow suit. “We think they are really good people and just wanted to help!”

Hence, the idea of the raffle for John’s next boat build came to be.

John, a full time fisherman our of Rye Harbor, has been building these boats for over twenty five years as a second job. He has made over a hundred during this span of time. Currently, twenty of them sit in Rye Harbor, built for friends and clients. The boats are used as tender to get to bigger boats, and for leisure. One neighbor takes his grandkids out every summer and treats it like a “family heirloom”. John built this particular boat in seven days- after his full time job. Any of you who know John, knows he can not sit still. The boats are a good channel for his energy. John builds many sizes of this flat bottomed model and he builds custom boats as well. Experience on the water and as a boat builder contributes to his skills as an astute repairman for these well-crafted beauties.

This twelve foot long vessel is pine planked with stainless fasteners. Just big enough to seat four and to not require registration. It comes equipped with oars and oarlocks. It weighs 125 pounds and can be put on the back of a trailer. The winner will have to have a truck or trailer available to use to haul the boat away.

***Please note that only 150 tickets are available.***
