Forget the Terminators new revaluation of a secret love child with a house worker.. We have bigger news.. Ya got your Spruce Goose, and countless experimental airplanes.. Missile launching bra designs, Movies… And now.. ladies and gentlemen.. A dingy.. Yes.. a dingy.. Cough cough.. cue the crickets.. chirp chirp.. single clap, gafaw.. A dingy.. While old Mr Hughes was changing the way we all travel. Aparently he had the time to design a secret dingy on the side. And folks, thanks to fellow Woody Boater Bob Killeen who found this rare Hughes Sportster on Craigslist.
And this one claims to be even more special that just being any old Digny.. Its from the Spruce Goose.. Yup..
Howard is not with us anymore. He no longer is locked up in his hotel room to comment on this revaluation. So right now all we have is the word of [email protected] and his wild claim. AND NO IT DOES NOT SAY THAYER IV on the transom! Now.. You would think this would end here.. Ohhhh nooooo! Not with the crack research team.. No, our research team is not on crack by the way.. But our team.. OK its Texx, thats it.. Texx has found some more info on Hughes Sportsters.. Here is what Texx found on a Wood Boat Forum.. ” The story goes that there was a delay of the Govt. contract for the Goose and Howard put all his craftsman to work building these dinks (and some office furniture) using the same laminate birch process to be used on the plane.” Thats it.. Thanks Texx. And there you have it. Could this Dingy on Craigslist be the actual Spruce Goose Dingy? Is that really a woman you are meeting from Craigslist?
