    If you hear no more from me, that means my wife has discovered my boat stash.
    Yes, it needs work, but it has solid bones!
    Heck, all the boats I acquire need a little TLC.
    It will be standing tall when it hits the club pond.

    Hello, My name is Dave, and I have a model boat problem.....

    Great Pics. Thanks for sharing. Nothing like being on a farm. The only thing better is being on a boat๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š.

    Bet you had fun on that Trev, love the old Farmalls. Couldn't afford one of the big ones (sought after by collectors here, and not many left which aren't in collections) so had to settle for the A. Drove a big Inter when I worked on a cotton farm in Australia ( model 1066,- I think,-similar to pic) rear wheels were nearly 6ft tall,- a real beast. Also a twin row Inter picker. Friends parents had a farm in NZ as well, heaps of fun at haymaking time etc, driving tractors around.

    I haven't learned much in my dotage, but have developed a system to divide "wants" from "needs".
    When I see something I really, really "want", I tell myself I can have it in three days. After two days I revisit the item and if it's gone I didn't need it. If it's still available and now I only "really" want it, some of the pressure is off, and if I wait one more day and still "want" it, the item becomes a "need". Then I rationalize that since I can't take the $$ with me when I go, I may as well do my civic duty and spread it around while I'm here.

    Ron, you are right,
    I should ban myself from ebay. I am not a gambler, too cheap, but ebay?!

    Why even go looking on ebay?

    Letโ€™s say you are trying to shed a few pounds, you pass by the bakery where fresh bread or butter tarts have just been displayed. Tempted yes, but walk on by is the answer.

    Better yet cross the road before getting there.

    I would love to see some pics of your tractors.
    Good thing we don't live close by or I would be over Gawking.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Beautiful job JB.
    Farmalls are my weakness, (I have a lot of weaknesses).
    As a kid we had a small farm. the tractor we had was a Farmall Super C. never gave us any trouble. That had electric start but also allowed for had crank start.
    As far as hand cranks. I had a 32 Pontiac in my 20's. It had electric start, but also had the hand crank option. I used to get a lot of looks in parking lots when i nonchalantly took the crank out of the car, walked around to the front, inserted the crank and started the engine. It was a 6 cylinder, obviously not with 10 to 1 compression๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.
    The most important thing was NOT to wrap you thumb around the crank, but to keep it in line with the rest of your fingers. Thereby not breaking your hand in the event of a kick back.
    But you already know that๐Ÿ˜€
    Sorry for running on.๐Ÿ™„

    I completely agree Ron.

    Ron,
    My comment regarding my wife, was just a joke. We have a very solid relationship.
    And, lots of self discipline during my earning years is allowing me some extra discretionary spending in my retirement years.
    My biggest problem now is space. We have been purging like crazy, but the intake seems to be outpacing the outgo. sigh ...
    All is good. I start the 12 step model boat hoarders program next week ....

    Not a good excuse that the it was a package deal or not. I have a hobby budget, since there is nothing but my pension income each month, my wife and I made an agreement.

    It works. If there is something needed, I must sell or trade to remedy the need.

    Self discipline is a good trait to develop, give it a try, you may be surprised at how things are not as needed as one thought. Relationships with loved ones are more peaceful and less stressful too. Trust is valuable.

    My two cents

    Funny you should mention Farmall 'A' tractors Trev, did this one up back around 1995 to tow my 100% Hartley. No starter, and would smack your hand if you got the cranking wrong, (guy I sold it to had his hand broken by it!). Towed the boat well, but the band brakes were terrible. Luckily I only had to go about 200yds on the flat to the boat ramp.

    Not quite a ride-on, more a drag you along,- Masport Grass Master 3 speed (King Cat Cub in disguise) walk behind, my current grass controller. Had it about 14yrs.

    Trev,
    I've got:
    2 - Bolens HT20's and a Bolens HT18. Yes, they are brutes!
    Ariens 2200 Grand Sierra and GT20.
    212, X324, GX345, & 1025R Deere.
    Some tractors are set up for snow removal, some for mowing, and the 1025R for heavy work ...
    I really do need to thin this collection out some. Think of how many boats I can put in place of each tractor! LOL
    Dave
    PS In all fairness, I inherited over half of the tractors as a part of my Dad's "some day, this will all be yours" collection. LOL

    There is no known cure (apart from the obvious) and I'm sure none of us can leave a balsa rack unmolested in a model shop, or spot a nice piece of wood, and not think, "that would make a nice model, if only I could cut it into strips" or perhaps a nice piece of 12"x12"x36" driftwood and turn it into a tug..............................๐Ÿ˜‚

    Brilliant PJ, my worry exactly, (and probably my sons') My son has no interest in RC models, and is going to get stuck with this lot๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - even I don't know what to do with them. Each one is fully operational but hardly used these days (apart from the boats). I recently sold a plane and disassembled an experimental ducted fan Quad, which made room for, - MORE MODELS !โ˜น๏ธ A couple of years ago I sold 3 helicopters as well, but the pile is not getting smaller ๐Ÿ˜?? Obviously been suffering from undiagnosed modelitis for years,๐Ÿ˜ (add another 11 planes, 1 helicopter and 10 boats in the past from (1968) and the prognosis is not good๐Ÿ˜

    Furball,
    Yeah ... she was at my shed over the July 4th holiday weekend. I think I'm discovered .... sigh. She also eyed my garden tractor collection pretty closely. I thought having a shed 3 miles from the house would be safe, I guess not.
    So far, the only repercussion is her buying more and more expensive toys for the grandkids. And that may have happened anyway.
    I'm still in the same bedroom!

    Lookโ€ฆโ€ฆ. I figure it this wayโ€ฆโ€ฆ..
    If your wife stumbles into your collection, and your buddies notice a new man in your wifeโ€™s life, something has gone awry. BUT, perhaps your wifeโ€™s new husband will appreciate everything youโ€™ve brought to the relationship prior to him.

    I hope he values the boats and a 10,000 + hot wheels and matchbox collection tooโ€ฆ. Or I will haunt his ass ! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I donโ€™t have a previously owned Cobra in my โ€˜stashโ€™, but do have an unbuilt kit, as well as a barrel back.

    But they were obtained when I had a separate mailing address. Now I need the time to make space to build them, but they are not on the market.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately) I have the same โ€˜illnessโ€™ regarding a stash of model airplane kits.

    This is my kidsโ€™ greatest fear about my โ€˜collectionโ€™!

    You have to want to be cured. You sound like you do not want to be found out!
    Some of us have managed to live with this affliction (I don't like the word addiction) for many years. It is treatable but cold turkey (not sarnies) is unpleasant for all concerned.

    It has become easier to continue in a clandestine way with fewer model shops around but some still operate from backrooms, the supply is there. Best accessed via the untraceable Private Window then funding a Paypal account with innocent transfers. This stops it appearing in your bank accounts.
    An untraceable mobile 'a burner' can also be used.
    I think there is an organization that can appear at your house and remove all incriminating evidence, I believe operated by fellow sufferers, it is on the black web!

    If you want a cure you are on the wrong forum!
