UFO.

I can't wait to hear everyone's reaction to this nonsense.

Unidentified Floating Object (link)

A "living floating house"....what could go wrong?

Just a few excellent excerpts:

"leisurely maximum speed of 3.5 kts"

"a vegetable garden located on a deck that encircles the structure"

"To keep the craft stable, the UFO uses a special elastic anchor system."

"...unsinkable even in rough sea conditions"

Re: UFO.

Only if they landed from the sky.

Otherwise, just an odd lookin' boat.

Avoids the question: "What's the pointy end called?"

Re: UFO.

Two shitty problems come to mind: sea lions and sea gulls.

Cattle fencing and bird netting .....
Actually what I want to know is if it is blue water capable or just for coastal cruising ?
Also, does it come in a biggie sized version ?

Re: UFO.

I like the invisible bottom paint. They must have a transparent version for the windows.
