This Cracked Me Up


Recommended Posts

    Perhaps it's just an antique model of a ship wreck.  The modeler might have been exceeding his grog ration during his build sessions! 

    Thank heavens white glove (??) shipping is available (@ a mere $465) so you can be assured of her arriving in pristine condition!!!  Just in case though, you have two whole days to get a worry free return if you aren't totally satisfied. 

    Hurry, @ this low, low price of only $5950, this beauty won't last log. (Looks like it will soon literally turn to dust)  Be the first one on your block to own this historically correct pride of the whole Coast Guard fleet!  (Good sales pitch???)

    On the actual ship being modeled, they must have needed a crew of ten men or a crane to put what appear to have been twelve foot square copper plates on the hull.  (Just imagine the actual size that those rivets must have been!!)  Looks like the bowsprit was half the length of the ships hull.  Other than that, I'd say shes a real museum piece.
