#7125 Vintage, Rare 100 Pound Seattle Tug Boat 10 Spoke 58" Brass Wheel, Hub Marked "Markey, Seattle"

VINTAGE, RARE 100 POUND SEATTLE TUG BOAT 10 SPOKE 58" BRASS WHEEL, HUB MARKED "MARKEY, SEATTLE"

Vintage, rare Seattle 100 pound brass Seattle tug boat 10 spoke 58" tall wheel: "MARKEY, SEATTLE." 

Absolute killer for that tug boat guy's den in Seattle or anywhere else. What stories this wheel could tell, maybe some old salt out there still can! After it's sea duties, it graced the back bar of the "Sandcastle Seafood Restaurant" in Sunset Beach, CA from it's opening in 1971 to when the owner's Eric & Elaine Bakker sold the business in 1978 and kept this great wheel in their private nautical collection! Now after owning it for 45 years, they are now offering it for sale.

Some imperfections that come with age... All in all, it looks great!
Polished & lacquered to perfection!
