Re: Fat Boat update

Pardon my ignorance but what does a refit like that cost (ballpark)...just curious.

Also...I can see why a rear thruster was added, that must be like docking a cardboard box in a breeze.

Re: Fat Boat update

That is a sweet boat! Just put some paw prints on it and it's done. I mean, c'mon, every hull needs a pair of giant paw prints.

I just waited till friends with express cruisers were going out. Saved on fuel as well!

In a breeze, even twin screws don't help with this floating condo.

I didn't take any cause we didn't touch it. Safe to say, it's nicer than my place...

I'm curious...what did the PO say had put those paw prints on the hull? Mutant giant squid?
The PO had Newfoundlands. The paw sizes were about right...
