Thanks again to Restorer Extraordinaire and fellow Woody Boater Dave Moore of Northwood Boatworks for sharing some of his vast knowledge on the subject of the tiny details that can make or break a true show winner. I suppose for some , some of this is just common knowledge or old news. But for many, OK mostly me, the Great Ignorenceenie this is the coolest stuff on the planet. Better than any Superbowl. Oh, Wait, I can’t say Superbowl, that’s a copyrighted term, I mean the Big Game. Any way, before I am hauled off to copyright jail, can we get back to Oil Cans.
When you got your new boat, you would get a bunch of stuff; Fuel Stick, owners manuals, tools as we have talked about, A EZ Blow Horn, and some Oil Cans. We have covered the Duplex and Texaco Oil Cans, but today its about the little oil can. The kind that keeps little parts lubricated. Dave has an original Chris Craft one, clearly Pre Way since it says Chris Smith & Sons on it.
Which Dave is sharing for you and other folks out there like me that this is new too. The question is. Is there a Post war can? Does it also have graphics on it? Jim Staib of Fine Wood Boats and grand master of all that is Parts, will no doubt be out in the barn today rummaging through 30 of them.
And Happy Header day. Those new to header day, just refresh the page and a new header appears from over 8 years of headers.
