the bows of a Hinckley and a Tumlaren turned into pretty bizarre liquor cabinets:
What did those boats ever do to them?
This has been on the Forum before. I forget who, but one enterprising Forumite calculating the vast riches were he to chop his precious boat to bits and make $2000 coffee tables
I believe the vote was to keep the boat and skip the coffee table plan.
On another part of the website they mention chopping off old Chris Craft transoms and turning them into bars.
A local eatery here in Savannah did something like that and it was pretty sad. Even sadder is a 'Chowder House' in Boothbay Harbor that turned an International One Design into an outdoor bar complete with strings of Japanese lanterns... but at least they used the whole boat so I guess we have to take solace in that.
"A miniature brass document tube with information and photographs about the boat's heritage scrolled within."
Yah, the wood canoe book shelves kill me. Especially when a rather rare one shows up cut in half on ebay.
The shape of the canoe is not really conducive to shelving books either.
Thats sort of like stuffing your dead grand-dad, putting him in a butlers uniform and propping him in the corner with a drink tray in his hand.
