And if it showed up at my abode I have no doubt I would find myself living in it.  But it sure would be a fun project.  :bawl:



FOR THE LOVE OF GOD................NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never should a man buy a biodegradable boat.  Not to mention BRIGHT WORK.

Wineslob how's the restoration going???

It's at a stand-still. I have too much other stuff on the plate right now, so I think this will be a spring project.

Wineslob, sir, we need another update on this, please.

Notice how many times this thread's been read; you got an audience.
Democrats: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people by telling poor people that other rich people are the reason they are poor

Life is short, and suddenly you're not there any more.

I have same Boat (But mine is a 62 Sears/Elgin) Used it after a partial Resto in 2003-9 Timeframe with a 56 Johnson 15 hp motor and really loved it , it has been taken out of my usage rotation and is in storage in back yard . But seeing the pics (And having an early 60s 40 HP Johnson in the Garage ) makes me want to take the Elgin off Non-Op & get it ready for next Spring/Summer. I have been using a 1974 Reinell 17 ft. Closed Bow deep v Runabout with original 73 Johnson 115 outboard since 04 as my main Boating rig and it has never let me down .hundreds of Friends have gone out with me over years on the  Reinell and the Sears Elgin ... ( As a collector I have 30+ Outboards dating back to a 1928 Elto, and at one time 9 boats dating back to 1942 20 ft. Wood Navy Workboat

I don't believe in boats.



OK, I believe that boats exist. What I mean is that I don't believe I should own one.

We need a bone gif to rate all your posts on a scale of 1 to 5 bones.
They are all 5 bones posts to me.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

The boat is still on the back-burner. I need to sell my other one that needs the FWD/REV "clutch" replaced. I have the part but it requires the lower unit to be removed. With the new job and everything else going on, it's gonna be awhile.

That is perfectly stated Beagle math.  One bone plus another bone, equals a third bone. Now who is the dunce here? And where is that third bone?? Beagle math is a much higher form of math than one plus one equals potato.  Beagles don't need no stinkin potato. :rotf: Now make with the bones.
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

There is at least one other bone off the edge of the picture.

Looks too small for the Beagle, that must be the Bichon's.  The Bichon / Poodle mix is a delicate princess who chews her food.  The Beagle bolts it and moves on.    :rotf:

Beagles can be very messy eaters, too. Ours will actually pick pieces of food out of the bowl and place them on the floor, and eat them last.  I have no idea why because all the pieces look the same.
