So. First I know that when it comes to toys, you are NEVER supposed to touch them. Original is best. Right? Right? We all get this? Now, I saw this on Ebay. $20.. And it aint nuthn special. Or is it? Like finding a grey boat in a back yard. ya gotta look past the faded metal, and worn out block of wood. Look past that.
And then, maybe just maybe, with a little this and that. Poof.
So the question is? Did I actually Ruin it? Is that $20 toy now a $10 toy? I know, I know, its the same dam argument we have daily here. Restore or preserve. It does have its original bottom? All metal? I kept the interior original. Even the bow nail is the original nail.
This is a fine line here. This aint no 2,500 patina boat toy. This was a cool toy for the bathtub or something like that. I will say though, the metal bow cover is so cool! Not even worth $15 now? And no, its not allowed in the house, and the Boatress would pay you $20 to get it out of the house. I can’t win!
