Whilst on holiday last week I came across this in a shop in Wells-next-the-sea.



It is really to put on your wall and store ornaments on the 'shelves'

Well I laid it down and used the 'shelves' to make seats, added the 'eyelets' and hey presto a nice boat for my Pirates.

Shiver me timbers Cappy that's a fearsome looking crew of old sea dogs you have there. They must have all been at the rum judging by their googly-eyed, glazed expressions! lol!

Thats a nice boat. Could you not extend it and convert it into a Nam era patrol boat or a ww2 MTB?
