$5,000 Worth of Junk (Nov, 1958)
$5,000 Worth of Junk
IF you have a yen for something different like Robert A. Street of San Francisco, Calif., you can buy a bona-fide junk imported from Hong Kong for $5,000. The 30-ft. junks have some minor innovations like wells for the twin 18-hp outboards you need when there is no wind for the rust-colored sails. The boats are made of Borneo hardwood with one-inch thick decks. You get a charcoal hibachi-type stove with the craft and table service for six, including bowls, chopsticks and tea cups. You also get a proven 2,000-year-old design in these serene boats.
