Cundy Harbor Bait Boat
This little gem is a “re-imagineered” version of a boat that served fisherman off the shore of Fort Lauderdale one fall when we were taking a Florida vacation. The deal was this… incoming fishing boats would sell-off their “scrap” fish parts to the “bait boat”, while outgoing vessels (like the one I was on) purchased them on their trips out of the harbor. Pretty nifty.
Anyhow, when we ran across an old ink drawing of a simple barge with a cabin on it the Ft. Lauderdale trip came to mind and the “Bait Boat Barge” was born.
This one will take a little more time to do than you might think… with the exception of the one-piece resin hull there is a lot of board-on-board this time around… and with a small foot print of 4″x 1.5″, it’s sure to make any waterfront scene very cool indeed !
