I am not a conservator but I have a general question that you folks
may be able to help with. I have an 100 year old canvas covered life
ring from a harbor tug named after my grandmother. I would like some
info on restoration and care.

    **** Moderator's comments:   The Foundation of the American
    Institute for Conservation (FAIC) has a service called the AIC
    Guide to Conservation Services, which will help you find a
    conservator in a particular specialty and geographic area.
