cottaged up boat

Saw this yesterday. Looks like it started as a boat and has morphed into full blown ultimate boat cottage with all the comforts of home. Maybe next year it will have the hot tub on a added sun deck. Beats the high price of housing and real-estate tax in Seattle.

Funny thing is that these people are probably twice as happy and content as we all are at a small percentage of the cost. Getting a build certificate for insurance is probably a pain though.

I'm betting insurance is not part of the plan.

I kind of feel sorry for that poor boat. Of course, the owner probably thinks that when he goes to sell it, he will recoup all of his investment, because it is worth so much more than it was before. Of course, if that actually is what the owner thinks, he is COMPLETELY WRONG!

The Clampits and their vessel the Boatabego. They took up residence in the South end of the lake bout two months ago.

That boat is the reason we don't have mooring buoys on the South side of the Montlake cut anymore. They camped out there all last Winter and got kicked off the buoys for Opening Day. The buoys were removed so they couldn't return. Since then it's been floating around all over Lake Washington.

porman, are boats allowed to anchor in those areas where the mooring buoys were removed? Are there time limits on how long a boat can anchor in the lake?

Andrews Bay is the only official anchorage in Lake Washington, in Seattle. I believe you can anchor in Juanita Bay and Meydenbauer Bay since they are not part of Seattle. I doubt if you can anchor where the old buoys used to be. Depends on the mood of the Seattle Marine Patrol. The limit in Andrews Bay is 72 hours in a 7 day period.

Thanks Porman,


What about outside the UW stadium where tailgate boaters gather? Is that only open to anchoring on game day? Seems like a waste to have all that water at good depth and not be able to drop the hook for an overnighter.

I believe anchoring outside the moorage field is still allowed during game days. No overnights though, and if you want to go to the game you have to use their shuttle boats. Several years ago a bunch of us were anchored and rafted together. As soon as the game was over the Marine Patrol told us we had to leave immediately. Wouldn't even let us finish eating our barbecue. Now, I know a couple of the Marine Patrol officers and I think they do a great job, so I think they were just enforcing the rules.

ONE boat? That's all you got?

Down here in PeeDeeEx we got about twenty I can see off my deck, anchored off of Ross Island on the Willamette. And that's just in my line of sight. There are many many more strung out all through downtown, the channel and on the Columbia. Went past a few yesterday out of Tomahawk marina on the Columbia.

From their point of view, I can understand it's better than getting mugged/stabbed at night on land. But the hobo-boat thing is out of control here, no end to it in sight.

Did anyone read the article? This guy can't get a gig playing in his band so he wanted to create a venue. Thats the reason for this boat.

Now the thing is stuck, taking on water, damaging a dock and has a generator running 24/7 on the bow to keep the water out of the bilge. The sheriffs dept. is threatening to impound it! LMAO! That would be the BEST possible thing to happen!

Did you say cottages? Seen these in Oceanside Harbor...the marina is owned by the city and they do not care what is in the slip as long as the checks come in.
