Instead of a dingy...

Hehehe....this is good... its a HotTug, hot tub tug boat ;-) Brilliant for those cool evenings

Found here: Hot Tug









"Why thank you, Dutch peoples. I think I would like a wood-fired hot tub in which I can sail, and a tugboat in which I can enjoy warm baths. HotTug is a wood-hulled boat fitted with fiberglass reinforced polyester and a stainless steel, wood-burning stove for the ultimate one-two punch of relaxation: cruising and chilling in hot, bubbly water.

HotTugs measure 8' x 12.5' x 3.6' and come either A) equipped for the installation of an integrated, 2.4 KW electric motor with outboard engine (not included) or B) as an E-power model with an electric Minnkota RT 160 EM motor, two 12-volt batteries, and a charger ($19,400). Regardless of temperatures and weather conditions, the stove will fire up its wood and heat the tub water to 100 degrees F in about 2-1/2 hours."

Re: Instead of a dingy...

It's be easy to make one from one of the myriad derelict FG boats around now - get a 20 footer, cut the deck off, add a heater (electric?) and off you go.

LOL, good one

What is really neat, is actually behind the HotTug on this photo. There is this fantastic, single mast wooden retro-style sailboat with side centreboards. Just look at the size of the boom!! Gorgeous!! I could see myself living there. Wonder where this photo was taken? Denmark? Netherlands?
