FS Beautiful handmade wooden paddleboat..... Check it out

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&itemY50900461&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT
This finely crafted boat is handmade by a toymaker in Chester County Pennsylvania using five different species of wood. Each level of the boat is glued and pegged, then coated with five coats of high gloss polyurethane, which makes this a very durable toy. When the rubberband powered oak paddle is wound, the boat will slowly paddle the length of a bathtub. This beautiful paddleboat measures 10 inches long, 5 1/2 inches wide, and 6 inches high. It makes for a delightful interactive toy.

We're alla the way to US $0.44 as of this writing.
What is really telling is it's taken 6 bids to get it there.
UA100, who wonders, with all the pennies being thrown at the thing, do you think the finish will be damaged?...

Hey Deeny, We've already checked it out. Some of us have copied it and made our own. This is not the place to post your stuff for sale every couple of days.

Dang, you are insisting upon becoming a pest, aren't you?

OK, "finely crafted" is definitely stretching things here. Take a gander into abpw and look at Tom Planman's staircase prototype: *that* is finely crafted (with no quotes -- it ain't a hypothetical statement).
More accurate words for the boat: "hand made", "nostalgic", "toy from the past" etc. "finely crafted" -- uh uh.

"finely crafted" and 5 coats of poly?

I'm sure it's a fun toy -- I'm also sure people here appreciate your posting something that will provide inspiration for a means of using some of our scraps.

Again, I'm sure people also appreciate the dimensions -- that's quite helpful.

Not really. It is actually a nice wooden toy in the tradition of old wooden toys and may provide good entertainment for the odd child who still knows about tugs. What is wildly out-of-line of course is the description. Ya get the feeling that the person read some article about descriptions on eBay (or even general marketing) and took it all too seriously and out of place. I actually feel kinda bad for them.
