RTF...not sure how YOUR RHIB is designed...but on mine the motor is supposed to go on the other way....

But...where there is a will...there is a way...

How about a 37-footer with hot tub? This is the Great Harbour GH37, C View. I was the sales guy for Great Harbour - but not when this was built. So, I can't comment about how it worked out...

There was a 48' Hatt for sale over on the space coat with a two person hot tub on it. We looked at it, even had it hauled out. The upper deck had additional supports in place to hold the tub up. The boat had other issues so we walked away.

How many of you have hot tubs at home? After maybe 2 years, how often do you use it? And that's in a place you live most of your life. And the engineering is zero. And water is free and power almost free.

Seriously, this is a bad idea on a boat.

Wifey B: When home about twice a week.

On boat, about 1.37624113 times per week.

Several of us used it today.

It looked like a two or four seater, round with a full cover.

Any ideas what brand it could have been?
That was on a Defever 50, I also saw that and took a screen

We use our home one a lot, all year long. But then we have a really nice setting - but I would imagine the setting from the boat at anchorage would be even better.

Many of our boats are a really bad idea for people that hardly ever use one....same could be said of most American toys.


For people who REALLY would use one or if it is an insignificant cost for someone...then I like them. People who really use them tend to be outdoors in them rather than in front of the tube.


If you are into star gazing...hardly a better way I have found. I would put one on my boat in a second if it could handle one.

Right across from me then

If you look at my top photo, that canal is the other side of the house on the left with the red tile roof .

Yep. I believe that's Bill and Gail Cobb's house. My mom and dad (Rudy and Peggy Kraft) built and lived in the house next to the Cobbs on end of the canal.

(Sorry for the thread hijack)

Wifey B: I've never heard kumquat used in that way. Regardless of the number I think hot tubs are a great way to relax. Maintaining them, especially the water cleanliness, is a lot of work though. If I had to do that part, I might vote for a fancy large deck chaise lounge for 2 or 3 or more...Just a way to enjoy the view and peace but without the work or weight of a hot tub. We used ours last night. That's as much as I'll disclose. I'm being a good girl. Last night, I was Mae West good.

Kumquat...I can't find that even under urban slang.

You have to say it out loud.

Pronounced "come-quad".
