We stopped at the sale because he had some cheap skis on his front lawn, he tried to sell them to us and i told him he was to high because i was just gonna cut them up to make chairs out of and he said follow me you hit the mother load. We walked in his shop and their they were 27 of them, he told us never did he think someone would stop and want these old things. We have searched for 2 years for this and i guess persistance pays and a whole lot of luck.

Multiple beer holders in a chair................this comes from a man who likes his beer. I like the way you think.:D

Wow, great finds. Kind of a shame that you'll be cutting them up and turning them into lawn furniture though... if they were mine, Id be slapping bindings on them and put them to good use behind the boat!

I wouldn't cut a hole in them, I would use a binding for the drink holder.

Like the binding idea except for there aren't many left, and they've had 40+ years of other peoples' feet in them.

I would pull the plastic cup holders out of the boat and use those, though. And upgrade the boat to stainless, of course.
