Yes, it's best if one isn't stuffed.

The original cottage on a boat hull is priced well for all that living space. The motor room and what looks like abundant rust comes with the package very scary. If you put it in a slip or on a hook it makes a spacious live aboard. It does not meet my standards for marine art unless one intendeds a shock effect.

At first glance, I though it was Duct Tape!

The galley hinges up providing a place for the toilet when guests are expected.

there was a fellow at Sabine Pass Tx. that fancied himself a boat carpenter. He had a 65 foot very narrow sailboat hull that he was attempting to finish. I had the misfortune to witness some of his atrocities, such as using studwalls made from white pine instead of bulkheads and screwing it together with metal Simson Strong Ties and steel deck screws, residential type carpentry. He put a house on it that was absolutely straight and square, with square windows and. The running joke at the marina was that some folks like a wheel house, some like a pilot house, but Art likes an outhouse. But hearsay is that it was a half million dollar boat

That just gives credence to the Cajun mantra regarding the Sabine River. "Y'all got coonass's on one side and dumbasses on dotha"

Misspelling of Buddha seems appropriate. Or was it intentional?

Regrettably I dont have any pics. But if its still floating its still there. Work Of Art, cant miss it. Probably hasnt come up with the funds for rigging or ballast yet but I havent been there since a year after Rita hit. The boat had NO STRINGERS wood or otherwise, it was just a fiberglass tub with stud walls. His motor mounts for the Dorsett combine engine (great engines) were large built up ant hill looking lumps of glass mat and resin. They bolted 4 3/8 inch flat bars to the engine, set it in the boat and built the "ant hills" around the bars, no rubber at all. He needed a heavy gauge wire to his house panel but instead of buying 50 feet of number 2 Anchor marine wire he used a large comunications cable that had I dont know how many pairs in it. By his calculations it had enough copper to equal the number 2. He stripped the ends, crimped a connector on and was good to go. Most of the stuff he did was absolutely amazing, in a "O M G" kinda way. And yes, the coonass dumbass analogy is spot on

I think some peeps are missing the point of the Sabine River/ Cajun Mantra.
The Sabine River divides Louisiana and Texas. The Cajuns (Louisiana) use this saying referring (derogatory) to their Texan neighbors.

All the trawler you could want for 50K

I'm from Texas (y'all) and my wife was born in Baton Rouge, so I understand both nationalities. 😁
