Ramblings of a CW Fanatic

Parts Rigs

I have collected over the years a number of boatanchors that are either duplicates, or are basket cases to be used as parts rigs to repair or restore better units.  I’m sure I’m not alone in this.   I’ve noticed there really isn’t anywhere on the internet where you can find lists of available boatanchor parts rigs and individual parts that are available.   It would be nice to have a one-stop-shop location where boatanchor enthusiasts could list their excess items and parts.  I’m trying to figure out if this blog space could be used for this endeavor.  For now, if you’d like to list your available boatanchor parts rigs and individual parts here on this page, please contact me via email with your list and your preferred contact method.  If this takes off, it could blossom into a website utility of its own.

Some of these units, and their parts may be available for sale.  Keep in mind, some of these units or parts are specifically kept for future restoration of other more salvageable units.  But if you’re looking for a part associated with one of the units listed below, please contact me.  It may be available.
