I am Mike Dolbow, I weigh 170 lbs I am 5'9" tall, I am 47 years old
This project is called a boat named the overcome.
This project is to create a fishing charter service that is designed to take disabled anglers out deep sea fishing.
The design of the boat is very extensive and the equipment needed in order to service disabled anglers in their pursuit of enjoyment and relaxation through their difficulties.
We have been working on this project for 2 years to date.
We have obtained the support and services of volunteer mechanics, engineers, friends, storage yard where the boat presently resides.
This project will service mainly disabled anglers with disabilities ranging from amputee to stroke and bain injuries. Specialized fishing gear, chairs, and other specialized designs will be used to assist disabled persons in deep sea fishing and diving.
This project was the inspiration of Mike Dolbow here is his short story:
On August 24 2010 I had a heart attack and a stroke.
I lost my career my life everything. I was in a wheel chair for about 2 years.
I was a teacher and taught electronics manufacturing.
Most of that was lost. I went on SSI and have been living on disability now.
I was working 3 jobs trying to get ahead when it hit me.
Now all most 3 years later I have fought back. I am out of the wheel chair, I am 172 lbs and healthy now.
I still have some problems with my brain but i have learned to get passed them.
I traded the only thing I had left of my life, my RV for a 1977 30' Century sports fishing boat.
My plan is to get off SSI and become a charter fishing company that caters to disabled persons, mainly disabled young soldiers coming home with debilitating injuries.
It sounds impossible but so far we have the boat and the new motors and we have been modifying the deck for wheel chair access and other needed designs to assist disabled anglers in deep sea fishing.
I am out of money though and I am looking for sponsors to help me get this project and services off of the ground. We made this video to show how serious we are.
I verifies my stroke and what has happened with this project up to this date.
We also had our local news paper do an article on us:
I was told that i was never to hunt, fish or even walk.
I got my second chance and I want to dedicate my life to helping others enjoy what I was told would be impossible for me to do ever again.
The boat will be based out of Oceanside California near San Diego.
In this area we have a very large demographic of young soldiers coming home from Iraq, Afghanistan and other places of war, severally injured and in most cases amputee victims and severe injuries.
We want to service these young men and give them back the excitement of youth and fun through this service.
We also once funded will be placing HD camera all over the boat to film and give others hope through media.
Your help will get this dream off of the ground and it will help bring a service to these young men and women and give them back some sort of enjoyment and fun.
Thank you very sincerely for your time and interest into this matter
