After taking a very close look at the Lionel, I knew that I had seen it before. I rewatched the Pardeys storm tactics video, and there she is, the Pardeys are trailing a Lionel from their boat while rounding Cape Horn. Just some log trivia....

All the best,

Welcome Gmcghype, here are some pics of my complete Walker, and an extra main unit. http://www.sailnet.com/photogallery/...ry.php/cat/581

The "B5 5NX" is the serial number I believe. Mine has the number ingraved on the main unit and on the label on the box. I don't have mine in front of me right now, but I'll post its number when I get home to the boat in the morning.

Talking Cherub Mk.II

Thanks Sapperwhite for directing me here.

I don't own a boat but I used to work on a very old vessel built in Newport News. I was a Deck Cadet for 2 years.

I have a very old Thomas Walker Cherub log, Mark II that is. But on the face, it's got Dutch wordings of 'milj' (think it's 'mile' in English). Maybe modified, or copied version of the original - I don't know. I was wondering whether any of you guys has any info on this?? I can post up some photos of it soon. Someone on the ship wanted to throw it away, but I took it when I was discharged after finishing my contract.

I also have an old ships clock dated 1942 and has 'U.S Maritime Commission' written on it. Someone wanted to throw it away too. Believe me, it's a very old ship, it has still the original 1914 compass binnacle on it! Interesting ship! But yeah,..about the log. Let me know if anything comes up. I just want to trace its history and the market price for it if I do sell it. Thanks guys!

By the way, I only have the log, no line and 'spinner'.

Now I'm looking for another one. Anyone know of a good place besides egay to find one? I hate that website.


thanks,
Lancer,
There actually is what appears to be a nice Knotmaster listed on Ebay now. No reserve and starting at $100 with no bids at the moment. I don't know anything about them but was thinking of tossing in a bid if noone else does.

Trek,
I was thinking of putting a Trident instrument head on my boat purely as decoration. There's one on ebay listed at $300. I don't have a clue if they are easy to find and if that's a fair price. Any thoughts you can share with me? Again, I'm not looking for a functional unit.

Mijl is Dutch for mile.
