Obviously, what's wrong is that the owner should have used cedar or redwood shake shingles in the first place -- they would go much better with the look of the boat.

Canada has officially disowned that boat.

That is all.

I don't think it ever was a Canadian boat - it was granted refugee status.

C'mon people - there MUST be a boat that fugly in the States - how about playing fair?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I submit that there are many boats with shingles on the roof. We've all seen the houseboats that are barges with a cabin built on top.

No doubt is lost KGB agent, patiently waiting for recall notice, has built "typical small Canamerican house" same as taught in spy school before USSR fell apart. no one will think of looking for him in such shabby cabin. No boat. No cabin. See? No one even know what he is hiding in!

Can you imagine the mess if that boat ever makes it south to the tropics. The singles will melt to a sticky goo. It will be like fly paper one step on them and you will be stuck.
