At first glance I would agree but in this case, I don't think so! And if this was one of them I wouldn't have posted it. Odd-ball liveaboards are commonplace in these waters. He's got a quite a few new lines running back to the cockpit and he has some rope clutches on the cabin top. To me, it looks like he's getting it ready to go. It's a work in progress and all fresh work.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

This is unbelievable. What's holding those shingles down; roofing tar? The roof doesn't have enough pitch to let the shingles drain properly, so water will accumulate under the tabs. One freeze will lift the outer edges and allow even more water under the tabs. A second freeze will have them lift right off the roof. The next breeze will blow them all away. What he should have done is to put up a pitched roof made of 2x4's and A/C plywood, with the shingles properly nailed and copper flashing at the edges. Then he'd be able to properly insulate the "attic space" between it and the cabintop and lower his winter fuel bills. He'd have to be careful about electrolysis with the copper, but it would be manageable.

I wonder if he installed those shingles with roofing nails. Watch your head!

I noticed some hardware on the forward hatch of a 26 footer in a local marina this weekend. Closer inspection revealed the hatch was a kitchen cabinet door. Gotta love those raise panels.

Maybe he's heard Extreme Makeover is going to do a boat episode this season.....and he's got all of us beat on the odds! But good for him, if he enjoys it and catches a breeze.

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

Torch on roofing would have been a better choice of material.(amazing stuff) but you use what's available at the right price.Any roofer will give goodly sized chunks for free. Did you notice that he is on a boat and not wringing his hands worrying about how to get free? The perch and crabs under the dock are tasty and berries and fruit are just a walk up the road .You can keep your office job to pay for the gas to drive to the marina so you can write a cheque for the moorage and mortgage or slip out the back, Jack.
