You know I love a Higgins speed boat, and the other day found this little barn/box find on ebay. I couldn’t resist. To me its more fun restoring one that has been built than building one new. Its a Zen thing. I feel and respect the time it was designed and built. My job is to preserve and finish or refinish the boat.
I wonder if there is a ACBS category for best preserved models? No, not talking about botox facelifts on 70 year old models. Boat Models. Like wood ones. Anyway, looks like I will need to find some scopps and hardware. And this model had a gas engine. But I like the idea of building a box where one of my little engines can go. Maybe.
So I suppose my little barn is full again and Lil Stinky will have a Higgins pal to hang around with.
I wonder if this is like being a serial killer. Are these little boats my small animals I am gonna bury under the house?
And what about a 25 Sportsman Model. What gives with that? i have thought of ripping apart a U22 one? But wondering if they ever made a 25 Sportsman? IF YOU WANT TO READ MORE ABOUT LIL STINKY HERE IS THE ORIGINAL STORY!
