Swap Meet at Owl Harbor

I made a trip up near Lodi on Saturday for the annual swap meet at Owl Harbor in Isleton, CA.  Unfortunately, it fell on the same day as the Opening Day in Redwood City. I made a few new friends and founds a trove of nautical goodies.

  1. A barometer and ship’s clock from Bruce Baker, both manufactured by Weems & Plath went for $80, with a wood stand.  Looking them up online it appears they’re about $800 together. The ship’s clock is electronic, but it does have a nice chime on the hour and I have it set up in the living room.  Learning the ship’s bells!
  2. An armload of boat canvas with Eisenglas for $20.  This will be handy for fooling around with the sewing machine.
  3. Lifesling cover in good condition for $4 ($34 retail)
