Savannah GA – Thunderbolt Marine is proud to announce the opening of The Crew Lounge

TMI is proud to make The Crew Lounge available to all active crewmembers of yachts at Thunderbolt Marine for service. As a working service yard, we understand that it’s important to have a place to get off the boat for a while and we are happy to provide a space that is clean, comfortable and welcoming. We’ve converted a residence just across from our main gate to what we feel is and inviting, fun and comfortable spot for crew with a gym, lots of games including foosball and a pool table, lounge area, office, laundry and prep galley and lots of space. The large yard and deck out back has a large gas grill and side burner, tables and a lounge area.

Sustainativity Mattress Dash

SAVANNAH, GA (WJCL) – Ladies and gentlemen, start your beds! Sustainativity’s first annual Mattress Dash took place in Forsyth Park today. Teams paid $150 to compete against other teams. Each team must create a structure that holds a mattress that also has 4 wheels. 4 team members push the bed with one rider 150m.

Teams were encouraged to use green materials for their creations. Team “Bed of Roses” used old newspaper as roses on their structure.

All proceeds benefitted Sustainativity. It is a Savannah based non-profit organization dedicated to investing in sustainability projects for other non-profit organizations. Founder Tommy Linstroth says, “The first Mattress Dash is a fundraiser we’re doing to raise funds for our non-profit partner, Historic Savannah Foundation. We’re going to go in and do a green retrofit of their office to demonstrate green technologies that can be used in historic buildings as well as for renovations.”

There were 11 teams at the event, but only four winners. The overall winner was Thunderbolt Marina, Judge’s Choice went to Gulfstream, People’s Choice went to Bed of Roses and the Historic Savannah Foundation had the Greenest structure.

Sustainativity raised about $5,000 during the event.
