bootsale find
« on: March 12, 2017, 09:55:26 am »

i went the local  boot sale today   and found the hull of a uscg 44329 manas quan ,, minus the  cab and rear shelter anyway got talking to the stall holder  he asked if i was interested in boats  through small talk  , when   i said yes he asked if  i would be interested  in any magazines for research/pictures, turns out i am now the proud owner of  PADDLE WHEELS the paddle steamer preservation society rough guess 100+ mag/booklet  lol and old panflets and  something called cruising monthly   about 50 mag/booklet the things you get if you take time to talk to people
