    Suraj Sharma "Pi" signature screen-used lifeboat from The Life of Pi. Suraj Sharma "Pi" signature screen-used lifeboat from The Life of Pi.  (Fox 2000, 2012) This Academy Award-winning epic is transformational journey of "Pi" Patel, a Tamil boy from Podicherry, India, who explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age.  He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded aboard a lifeboat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker.  This is Pi's lifeboat used in this landmark film.  The design was based on archival drawings of steel lifeboats from the 1920s-1950s.  Crafted of heavy fiberglass with internal wooden support struts, the boat measures 25 ft. in length and 102 inches wide.  It comes with two wooden oars, each measuring 115 in.  The port side of the bow features the hash marks where Pi numbered the sunsets with a knife.  The lifeboat essentially became a character-certainly an important set piece-throughout much of the film.  Exhibits studio-distressing to show aging from exposure to the sun and saltwater.  Boat has some paint peeling in patches, but in overall good production-used condition.  Comes with a COA from Ang Lee Productions. Special shipping arrangements will apply.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
