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.

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.

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?
