CBMM boat auction - I bought the cheapest boat there - what is it?

No, it wasn't the wooden Lightning with trailer that brought $350...

I got a 30" long salesman's sample model of a "Flotilla 45" which apparently was never built in 1:1 scale. Looks to be 60's or early 70's and it's a very detailed, rigged and working model. Scale metal fittings, swaged steel rigging, working rudder/tiller, cars and tracks, and all. It's solid wood and the flat base (beveled at the edges so it can be displayed heeling) is part of the carved hull so it wouldn't actually float or be used in a pond.

So what is it?? I'm guessing it was a salesman sample for dealers or boat shows. It came with a wood case to transport it.

Was a Flotilla 45 built with a different name?

The only mention ever of "Flotilla 45" is a Coast Guard Auxiliary.

Perhaps the model you have is of one of the more infamous vessels of that group.

The tug was a sweet deal though. I was going to bid on the Oxford sailing dinghy but the auction was super slow and I couldn't wait that long...

That was a slow moving auction. I left halfway through the in-water stuff. Wife liked the lobster launch and the aluminum hulled Marinette. Did you stay long enough to see what the Hunter 25 (in water) brought?

I wanted to go but couldn't get away early enough to get there. It would be great if someone could post the final sale prices of some of the boats they remember...
