STONINGTON — For growing numbers of women in Maine’s commercial fisheries, the standard Grundens brand foul weather gear, or oil gear, is not cutting it. Commercial fisherman Genevieve Kurilec McDonald, a Bar Harbor native living in Stonington, is working on finding or creating another clothing option for herself and other fishing women.

    You should really think about going to “kickstarter.com” with this idea as a way to try & locate some funding sources. “Kickstarter.com” has been a huge source of funding support for I don’t know how many different ideas over the last couple of years.

    If you’re not familiar with it, It is an on-line site where you can put an idea or proposal out there for people to sign on to very much like investors (with varying amounts earning various perks). You have a stated goal that you feel you need to reach & once you do your project can become a reality.

    I’ve “invested or bought into” 3 or 4 ideas that really worked out well for the “inventors” & I got what was promised & I’ve been really satisfied. They actually raised much more than what was needed & at least several of them are now in business.

    NO, I do not have any interest what so ever in “Kickstarter.com”!

    Check it out & good luck!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Kickstarter has crossed my mind, I’m currently working on compiling the images in a photo-documentray or proposal of sorts.
