Re: Ultimate Live Aboard

I've no use for this sort of boat, nor the mind set that goes with coveting it.

But, ya gotta admire the broker's presentation of the vessel: good, comprehensive photos, with the boat in pristine shape for the photo shoot. So different from the usual approach to selling a boat.

But, what an insult to the environment and to the world. I wonder how much of it is recyclable?

Cheers,

Jim

Re: Ultimate Live Aboard

Think of the condensation problems - AND the cost of winter shrink wrap! Where are the wood stoves? In a pinch, one could start burning the extra furniture. Oh, I heard these people start securing things two months before leaving the dock - and still overlook things. WOW!

Glad you said it. I've been trying not to.
