i think its THE coolest boat ive ever seen


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

Posted:Pink hun i am already talking to the guy that owns her about viewing her.

She is going to be mine if I can raise the cash. If I can't raise the cash I'm buying a cheaper boat and using her as a model on how to convert it.

Pesky Ozzy boys letting everyone lay claim to my boat!

Posted:Hmmmmmmm..... You wait Doctor Lightning. Once I get out I'm going to hug you until you are as wet as I am!


Ben now look what posting my boat up has lead to. I should never have shown it to you until I had sold Garthy's kidney so I can afford it ubblol

I've done all the figures today and even if I sell my house and all its contents I'll still be a few thousand short on what I've worked out the boat would cost to buy, moor, insure, licence etc I guess unless I find someone who wants to invest in it with me I'll have to get a cheaper boat and renovate it myself.

I'm still going to go and see it though if the owner doesn't mind. I really want to see if its as gorgeous in real life as the pictures make it look.

Honey... I'm terribly sorry about this, but you did make a bad pun.

And you do know the rules about this sort of thing....

Again, I'm terribly sorry, but this won't hurt me NEARLY as much as it's going to hurt you...

Posted:ooh ooh! can i help? renovate i mean, you don't have to date me though. we can find another carpenter to fulfill that role if you want, i know of a few.

hmmm... a whole boat website, maybe i can find a clapped out old one that'd fit in my budget until i have to pay a small fortune in docking fees....

ok... no, none of them, better get a proper job first....

Posted:How about THIS one for renovating? I like the open front deck, but I think if it had a roll on/roll of glass roof it would be better. I'm sure you could make it so it had a sliding A-frame glass roof....

Check out its website. biggrin

Posted:No! cor... but it's not hard to imagine the floating ikea store is it, they'll probably take over a north sea oil rig or something, wouldn't take much to convert it to a nice blue shed and stuff it with furniture.

but in reality i think Ikea stuff would fall apart on the ocean (canal) waves, the moisture would make all the chipboard expand and split....

Since looking around more I've decided that I need a wide beam boat. So does anyone want the fairy boat? ubblol
