The Heritage Boatworks Acorn Skiff Drawing is a contest to give away the 11’ 9”  long wooden boat, a Acorn Skiff, along with a pair of hand-made oars.

The institution organizing and conducting the drawing is the Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program, Inc., also known as LAMP, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching and preserving the maritime heritage of our nation’s oldest port, St. Augustine, Florida.

The participant (each an entrant) must legibly print their name and contact information (phone and/or email and/or mailing address) on the ticket stub in the space allowed or on the back of the stub. The participant must retain the main section of the ticket as proof of having the winning number. The stub will be retained by the Heritage Boatworks and stored in a secure location until the time of the drawing. No purchase or contribution is necessary for a ticket, but the suggested minimum donation is $5.00 per ticket, or $20.00 for five tickets. Entrants must be located in Florida and at least 18 years old when obtaining the ticket. Tickets will be limited to 100 tickets per person.
