That pic gives new meaning to the term 'Narrowboat'.

I think it's the lens they used. It's Peter Lenihan's hand made Bolger designed 31 foot estuary cruiser, that he's been building in the thread "Just fore the Fun of it" thread since 2008(?), in building section.http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthread.php?80153-Just-fore-the-fun-of-it-%29
123 pages so far.
He is really funny. Should make the thread into a book.:D I just posted it on his thread. I figured he'd be surprised to see it in international news.:)

I spotted it as a Bolger boat immediately.

In the article, in YH finance it's about retirees getting rid of their homes and moving aboard boats and RV's.
After 20 years aboard, I'm not surprised! The guy helping Peter Lenihan tie up his boat lives in his house boat.

I spotted it as a Bolger boat immediately. Did you know who's it was? I knew the second I seen the picture. Then I saw his name.

Here they're known as grey nomads or "SKI"s (spending the kids inheritance)

Yep, I recognized Turtle Bay as soon as I saw the photo.
