The work of the Society is carried out wherever possible by volunteers in our Pembroke Dock workshop. Some tasks, of course, need the expertise of expensive professionals.  Working parties are held on a regular basis at Pembroke Dock on Mondays from 10 am and at other times by arrangement.  In the interests of safety, it is desirable that more than one member is present at any time.

We are creating a Maritime Heritage Centre in Pembroke Dock. Research, creating records, fund raising and furthering projects, involving correspondence, administration, accounting, drawing or other specialised work are often performed by members at home. The Centre will provide educational and recreational facilities for everyone.

The library which is temporarily housed in Blackpool Mill comprises over 700 maritime books; ranging from technical to fiction and a large number of nautical charts. These are available to all members for research on the premises, or, in the case of books, to borrow. We also have a near complete collection of PBO magazines with much information of boats built over all those years. The Society welcomes offers to donate artifacts,  including books and charts. A growing collection of photographs needs filing on computer disc and display copies are required. 

A limited research service is available to members and non-members. This could be expanded, given additional research volunteers.  Any special talents or skills will be welcome - there is usually a need for photography, audio or video recording, draughtsmanship, administration, fund raising, event organising etc. and lots of semi-skilled or non-skilled help can be useful too.  Enthusiastic members to talk to the public and 'steward' our displays are always needed. Don't hesitate to join in the fun.
