  • 3 Mile, 5 Mile ?

    Not sure how many miles out you had to go to use these.

    This was one of these days I didn't get started on anything in the shop until late. Looked around, had the wheels, scraps so this is a start.
    This was from Kelly's boat and well, I had scrapped two others and always thought, what can I do with it ???

    So, looking at Harbor Freight for a rolling stand, I though, why not use this, its Boaty looking and its in a Boat Shop.
    Next time I get the sewing machine out, I will upholster a diamond pattern cover for the lid.

    Then maybe some day, pull it down and polish all the brass and then seal it with the wheel coating or clear lacquer

    That'll make it fit awkwardly when you reinstall it in the boat!
    Ha, just kidding.
    Glad to see it live on...
