I've mused to myself, if I had it all to do over, back when I was single and without children, I would have bought a decent boat and lived aboard. It would have been so much cheaper than all those apartments and rent homes I pissed away money on all those years.
You can buy a decent boat for 10K, maintain it, pay slip fees and still come out way ahead of the rent race. Damn, you actually get to own something too. Full coverage insurance is probably about $300 for a year and I've never seen it required. I can walk to the floating bar from my boat, the marina has a nice pool, showers, bathroom, general store and the weather in Texas is nice. Work is 10 minutes down the street from the marina.
Oh, plus you get to go sailing.
Wish I could get a do over. Oh well.
As far as this tiara chick. It sounds like it was the either the free boat or the homeless shelter for her and her children. I'd pick a boat, even a slowly sinking one, anytime. Maybe she is a hustle, or maybe not. Sounds like she got beat down by some members and bailed.
