spoils of war.....

well,
im back from my one month, turned into two months, excursion to the great(cough cough!) city of Brooklyn, NY

i scrounged around in old boat yards whenever possible
consignment stores packed to the ceiling
and every craigslist and ebay post i found interesting.....

i made it home with a NOS force 10 cabin heater
a set of old heavy bronze navigation lights(possibly runway markers)
a clinometer that im not sure is as old as i thought(lol, might be a fake vintage from India) but still a cool looking piece
a new copy of Nigel Caulders 4th edition book
and a 21 inch bronze ships wheel for the pilot house !!!!!

im seriously thinking of using a high end wood from six countries i have visited to replace the 6 handles on the wheel.....we'll see

anyway.... iimmm baaaaack

Welcome back, TY! We missed you!

Great finds. Gotta love the nautical treasure hunts!
