ebay Saturday: Greenwich Boating History

Check out this 1940s ad for a Greenwich-based boat design firm.

Welcome to the weekend Greenwich!

The weather's starting to tease us—and remind us—that spring: the season for tag sales is here. Charge!

Whether you're an armchair shopper or a power shopper traveling the long, winding roads of Fairfield County, here's some help. Each week, we'll search the term "Greenwich, CT" on the popular auction site eBay and see what pops up, and post it for Patch readers to see (and perhaps bid on).

Maybe you have a Greenwich-related item — a postcard, a milk bottle from the old Round Hill Farms, a menu from the former Manero's steakhouse, or a matchbook from the old Pickwick Arms (who remembers where that was located?). Or maybe you're looking for one of these iconic Greenwich collectibles. If you do and want to sell it, or you have a bunch of stuff to sell, you can click on your submit your photo or videos button above.

Today's item may be of interest to local mariners, especially as the boating season is poised to to begin—a Sea Beaver Cruiser First Marine Design & Engineering Greenwich CT ad 1948. The ad for the Greenwich-based company appeared in the January 1948 Motor Boating magazine. Bids are up to $8.95 with the sale closing in 13 days.
