We were meandering the marina area in the cold morning air when the OFM had a thought.  He almost did not recognize it since he has so few of them. Maybe it is time to tell the readers about friend Tim’s house boat.



It does not  look all that special. Just a nice liveaboard houseboat moored in a marina.  Basically a water based RV.  What is so special about this boat?

Well Tim tells me that this houseboat is one of very few in the country that was designed to be able to pull waterskiers behind it. It has two “Corvette” engines in it and a planing hull so it can go fast for a houseboat.

Tim has been living in it for several years now with his neat puppy Gabby. Friendly is Tim’s first name so feel free to Howdy him if he is outside.

While this boat reporting idea was fresh on the OFM’s mind he went around the marina searching for special boats and found a few that we will report on in the future. For some reason messing around a harbor and boats is a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
