Varnished to perfection
Shiny enough to use as a make-up mirror.
You couldn't miss the blue on this sport model
or neat oval instrument panel on this one.
Notice the shifter is on the floor.
I liked the little anchor on the locker door.
Some boats were very simple and sparse.
While others epitomized a fine day of boating.
Like this forward cockpit.
Complete with upholstery
and a rear deck for serving lunch
and a flagstaff with a flag in a perfect color combination.
This one had a fiberglass deck but I couldn't help taking
a photo of the pristine all white anchor.
A reproduction row boat whose owner patiently
let me click away for that perfect shot.
I think this motor might have been red at one time.
This little cutie caught my attention with its non traditional
colored exterior and interior.
For many little "Doodle" the dingy was
the belle of the ball,....
but for me it was "Alda"
You might recall my saying we are over run with boats from paintings to pond yachts,
but this little cutie in all of her faded glory with years of neglect from being stored in an old
garage for over 50 years literally won my heart.
I also knew my friend Terri of
LaDolfina would not have hesitated to say if she is ever for sale call me.
She also would have liked this old deck chair.
Have a great week everyone.
