Remember that Mechanix Illustrated Magazine Cover?
Ya, that one? We featured it on a Sausage day and sure wanted to know more. Well HELLO ebay! Its like the Mall Of America, with just old boat stuff. Anyway, looks like some picker hit pay dirt and found this Model all done..ish..
And yes 400 bucks is a tad crazy pants. But oh well. The planet has a way of informing them. Q the crickets.
Or if you have a deep hankering for this because your pop built one in the day to impress some girl. Well here it is. now you just need another person to feel the need. Such is the curse of a Reserve with a crazy high price to start.
On this item I would have let the buyers bid it up. Get emotionally involved. But oh well, the listing will get lost in a sad sea of 500 buck books worth 50, and crappy Xerox prints that are made to look old. UGH, sometimes I hate the world. I just want to slither into my Pj’s and go boating. I MISS SUMMER.. YOU CAN SEE THE LISTING HERE ON EBAY!!!!
Hmmmm. I think I will pass. And,it is 9 this morning, and not a warm Canadian 9! How many days until Tavares?
Got you beat! 7 at my house and not that warm upstate NY warm 7
We use the same thermometers in WNY as you guys in NJ. The ones they use in Canada tend to give very pessimistic numbers like 32 on a hot summer day, or 9 when it is pleasant sweater weather.
I havent been outside yet, and now I see no need to go outside. I will just sit in front of my computer and look at boat pics.. Summer boat pics..
I second that. 14F here in Michigan this morning.
Have you seen the latest Hagerty Insurance video? It’s on YouTube, and aimed at their car insurance clients. They filmed this episode in some backwoods place called Reedville, VA. Barn find of more than 40 cars and a couple of boats. All for sale! Go get ’em!
Just curious…on the magazine cover…what is she holding in her hand?
That’s a battery for the glow plug on the motor.Curious the way that they’ve got her holding it.Reminds me of the photos of models holding onto a stern pole.
Beautiful winter sunsets in Central Florida at 70 deg. Tree is setup waiting on Santa.
Lots of boating so come on down.
Okay, maybe I’m just a snob but why own a Chris Craft for $400.00 when you can have a Riva for $330.00 ? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Riva-Aquarama-RC-Convertible-Handmade-Wooden-Model-Speedboat-Scale-1-10/264566245571?hash=item3d996088c3:g:D9YAAOSwFwNd9DvR
