I guess as long as you didn't try to run the boat with the water in it it works. Darn stupid but he could have put it on the house boat that they had (read the whole story) and that would be worse. Falls into the category of more money than brains. You really can't operate the hot tub unless connected to shore power.

IrwinSailor ripped his hot tub out from inside Amanda Faye right after he bought the boat. Old timers here recall all that. The pictures are still in his gallery. This stupidity has been done before by bigger idiots.

It did take me a couple of years to make the decission to take it out. I surely would never put one in a boat, but once it is there it was hard to take out. I am glad it is gone the saloon looks so much better.
