Yes, we are going to touch on the horn subject, ONE MORE TIME. And no, we are not running out of stories, and no we are not farming for more Blow Me jokes. But, last night at 1 AM we got this from Dane Anderson, who found this page in a 1946 Catalog. Well, well. So we now know the horn is at least a post war horn. But if you dig further, the term Dependable is also used in 1930’s catalogs ,
and, from this catalog from the 1957 year uses Dependable…
Is the non branded one earlier? And then there is the new Third design Jim Staib from FINE WOOD BOATS sent in. Which clearly looks 1960’s .
The topic is having your boat judged at a fancy pants show, and even though you have a horn on board, is it the right logo or tag? mmmmmm? A horn is not just a horn is it? FLASH BACK… Zipper Logo hell. Ya ya, but the point is here, if you are going to have a horn, and it has the wrong logo, it should be a deduction, even though you have a horn. Graphics matter in our culture. They should, because our passion here is a very visual passion. We as a community, are aesthetically driven. AND YES, I HAD TO LOOK UP THAT WORD. ya gotta admit, that one is a spelling bee special.
Anyway I digress into my A.D.D. So thanks to Dane and his sickness for digging into Wilcox Crittenden catalogs at all hours of the night so I could bore you all with logo dates.. And the spelling of “aesthetically”
AND BECAUSE WE KNOW YOU WANT TO SEE THE TOILET ON EBAY, HERE IS THE LINK
