The boat anchor works pretty well ..

I bought this plane for $ 25 and its not in great shape.  The sole has a crack in it (see the lower edge of the mouth) and will probably blow up some day.  It’s not flat and it has a giant pit in the sole.  The blade’s very pitted and and kinda nasty.  The knob has black sticky goo on it.

But it works as a pretty well as a rough worker and reduces thickness on a board pronto.  I put a nice curve on the blade and even though its kinda nasty it sharpens up nicely.  I put almost no work in it except to put a curve the blade and sharpen it.  Pretty good for $25 .. or at least I think so.
