Matryoshka boat, originally uploaded by spinneyhead.
I spotted this on my ride into town. It’s a rowing boat which breaks down into three pieces which will stack inside one another for better storage. I didn’t ask how much it was going for, in case I could afford it.
Thoughts of furniture have been occupying me recently. I looked at the prow section and saw a very interesting shelving unit.
My “Oh wow!” moment of the morning was finding a seller on eBay offering remote control models of Donald Campbell’s last Bluebird boat. They’re available in 1:6th and 1:10th scale.
The South Manchester Model Boat Club get their boats out on Platt Fields boating lake on Sunday mornings. It would be mean to turn up with one of these and blast it around the island.
