THANKS: A huge thanks to fellow Woody Boater Glenn Murray for sending us in this cool auction. As you can read, it’s two lifetimes worth of stuff. Which leads me to this thought? We get two lifetimes? Is there a third one? And does the third lifetime involve boating?  I am so confused. Either way, you can paroooz through this.  And yes, I do understand the two collections of a lifetime. It was an attempt at humor.  Okay here.

Phil? Have we got a toy for you.

DESCRIPTION: Two lifetime collections of vintage nautical / marine items including toy boats, toy outboard motors, old marine literature, rare wooden boat parts, four crated antique outboard motors, marine oil cans, nautical advertising and vintage signage, ships binnacle, brass lanterns, brass diving helmet – Over 800 interesting lots

Lots of still in the box stuff. Oh ya!

We all want to know the story about this prop!


Thats a taste, here is the entire meal! It may take two lifetimes to look through it all. COOL way to spend a cool Saturday CLICK HERE!

    18% buyer prem. seems a little high. and who knows what they charge for shipping think ill pass. fun to look thru the cat anyway

    Wow, it took two cups of coffee to quickly get through that catalog. Sort of an Amazon for marine pickers. May go back for a closer look at the books and manuals later. Some very unique stuff.

    I, too, thought the buyer premium was excessive. Lots of cool stuff, though.

    WOW, did you miss an opportunity!

    You COULD have milked this with one item at a time! You would have had enough stories till Dora.

    Cant wait Looking for both Bow and Stern Flag poles for 1963 Century Resorter.

    First fishing shanty on our bay. No boating fo a while!

    The buyer premium is pretty high because the item price would probably be low as opposed to say bidding on a car which is roughly an 8% premium. Just my guess.

  9. Mark in Ohio (sometimes da U P)

    Looks like some cool stuff. I hope some of you guys buy something, and give us a report.

    When we visited Muskoka in 2016, we toured the Kennedy collection during the pre-events before the big Saturday show. Is this the collection being auctioned off?
