7' Hughes Sportster Dinghy
Should I sell for restoration or create a planter with this 7' Hughes Sportster Dinghy?
I purchased this boat via Craigslist for my wife to create a planter with.
When we brought it home and saw the Hughes Sportster stickers I looked it up online.
I found it was an antique dinghy made by the Howard Hughes Aircraft Company.
Most likely from 1942 to 1944.
My question is should I offer it for sale so someone can restore it?
I'd hate to destroy a piece of history if someone thinks it's worthy of restoring.
OR should I go ahead and let my wife create her planter with it?
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
