One of my friends had the WHALE when we were kids. Every time we played GI Joes, the WHALE would always be at the center of the action with Cutter in the lead. In our battles, the Joe team would defend the Transportable Tactical Battle Platform from Hydrofoil and Water Moccasin attacks. Since I got to play with my friend’s toys, I never asked for the WHALE of my own. However, the battles we had using Cutter, led directly to my asking Santa for Shipwreck the following year.
I have had a Cutter WIP in my bins for the longest time. I never seemed to get the recipe down. Since I have been revisiting childhood favorites lately, I figured it was a good time to revisit my custom. I have a recipe that I like now, but I may update the life jacket down the line if a better option presents itself.
