Leftovers! Like Sausage, Only Worse.
Well, looks like we made it through another Thanksgiving, and now its leftover time. Today we have a fine selection of scraps, that make a story-ish. Hey! You do this every day. Some days just kinda sit there.
Hope you had a great Holiday with family and friends.
How many more days until Tavares?
I thought I had the same model boat as the MEchanix Illustrated but after I looked at found it is actually a production boat that someone customized with their own color scheme, I think. Missing windshield and other miscellaneous hardware but they got the hull shape close to a CC late 40’s Custom which is more than I can say about most other woodie knockoffs.
Actually, after a closer analysis, paint appears original, just worn and chipped from use. Being a production model I wonder if anyone has one in better shape with all the hardware and original electric motor. Interestingly it has twin props/shafts with single rudder. I don’t see any battery box or electrical connections so maybe it was an unfinished kit as far as propulsion is concerned.
Stopped in here looking for you. Didn’t see you. But the bacon selection was unbelievable. Bought some 3/8″ thick stuff.
Love the very rare picture of the Such Crust. Mr Jack Schafer would be proud. Have the original model in the box.
“Oh honey, I just love the view of the engine”
I used to own one of these. Ask her how she likes the smell of the 2 cycle oil heavy exhaust.
Loved it! It’s hard to believe that all those young babes are old or dead now. Thank god for pictures and memories. I enjoyed the brochure of the 75 Starflite II, since I have one just like it’. I could almost hear and feel the sound of that big v4. Thanks!
That spot on the lake looks a bit shallow for diving… The unpublicized back story on the model holding the model is the other model hooked up the battery, causing the motor to rev, severely injuring model #one, when the propeller macerated his thigh… As for two-stroke exhaust, it’s effective as a West Nile carrier eradication cloud… 😉
That big old 1.5 volt dry cell starting battery sure brings back memories!
