    Ed,

    I'm sort of a sucker for "rescue boat" projects, too. Almost all of mine needed rescue efforts of some sort.

    Friends refer to my fleet as "The Island of Misfit Toys".

    There is a certain satisfaction in saving a boat from being tossed in the trash bin.
    Sometimes I get lucky, and they turn out pretty nice. ๐Ÿคฃ

    Dave B

    PS I actually also made an impulse buy at a swap meet on May 5th. You might recognize it .....
    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.

    Today will be my first day back in my workshop since December last year.
    Have to look at the โ€œimpulseโ€ acquisitions I made while I was recovering. A part built Krick U25, a Deans Marine HMS Royal Marine and a Billings White Star. All of which need to be completed or restored.
    First I need to install and commission the milling machine that I bought last November.
    I intend completing my Titan Tug before starting on the restores.
    I soon be able to complete the articles on model boat wiring as well.
