Art Projects


On-site Medical

Ephemerisle can be a hazardous event. Please help us bring on-site medical personnel by donating to this fundraiser:


Kevin Hinman Appreciation Fund

Kevin Hinman has provided and continues to provide much infrastructure and labor for Ephemerisle over many years: Bridge Boat (used to push Bargey and other craft), Movie Barge, Blues House, hundreds of feet of walkways, and many other contributions. Providing all of this infrastructure is costly. Please help us express appreciation for his past contributions by donating to this fundraiser:


Porta Potty Fund

Want to help fund a Porta-Potty? Unless otherwise specified, this fundraiser will go to funding a Porta-Potty:


Note however that no one has stepped up to manage rental / delivery / pickup of PortaPotties yet. Maybe that person is you?


Charlie Deist Live Broadcast

Charlie Deist will be broadcasting live from Pikler Island this year about how to optimize for health, fun, and freedom on the water.

Enjoy Episode 1 - Several Sailboats and a Central Platform:


It's still not too late to sign up for the Sailing & Seasteading Bootcamp, and bypass the many mistakes I've made since my first Ephemerisle in 2011. I also have some berths (bunks) available for a nominal donation to the island fund.


Chuck the Human Launcher

Get launched by Chuck, a steel pneumatically powered human launcher. Chuck will send you flying 20 feet in the air to splash into the beautiful delta green. If you lose your genitals in flight they become property of the ride operators!

Sea Shanties

The Washed Up Yacht Club led a round of sea shanties on Hot Dog Island.
