"Bubble boat"?

I was watching the Maine governor's "kiss my butt" video and happened to see this one on the TV station's website:

Yeah, that's Tim Reilly. He's a member at this forum and SailBoatOwners.com. His baby is overlooked by a huge, floating restaurant in Portland. Must be a Maine thing.

very cool,

some days I wish I had the courage to sell everything and get back to a minimalist lifestyle.

Amen, Dave! I have boxes and boxes of crap that we "have to save" that will be throw out someday, never having been used or seen. Chuck it now and stop carting it around! That's what I say!

What is the plastic covering? It looks like a clear shrink wrap, which I haven't seen before - any idea where it is available?

Found it!

Technically it apparently is called "clear shrink wrap". imagine that. It also can actually be purchased online.
Wow, this Internet thing is good.

Way to go Tim R!
I don't know about tomato plants but I would think they could grow some leafy greens like lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard etc. They are pretty quick crops.
That is a 41' boat if I'm not mistaken and while it is much smaller then a house it is probably bigger then some city dwellers apartments, has a better view and can go places (once the clear shrink wrap is off and all the crops are harvested).
Good for the Reilly's.
