    Is this the same boat that ran a few loads of veggies down the Hudson to New York City?

    Heh, reading that, I figure they'll take the lightbulbs out and the half roll of toiletpaper left in the john, but at least the paving slabs for ballast come with.

    I believe it is. But what a fine summer cottage afloat it makes.

    I thought they had some building issues - bad plywood or some such - or am I misremembering?

    Built in 2013, stored under a roof since 2014.
    Too bad this dream did not work out.

    Indeed. Whole lotta bs&t went into the boat.

    Would $8000 be roughly the cost of 5 years of covered storage in that area?

    I think they stored it at a farm or rural home. Covered storage? Not much of that around here except for smaller boats - say max ~20 ft. Most everyone shrinkwraps or tarps their boats here.
