Try and Photo shop this one!

This boat is for sale in the San Francisco area. I think someone thought the Photo Shopping done on some of the boats were of real boats.
Enjoy

I'm not much on houseboats but I like this one .It's on our dock . 50ft Home built steel hull with wood house . It has single 6-71 Detroit with a big rudder (not your average houseboat) The interior is pecky cypress . The roof ? has a nice curve up starting at the forward bulkhead sorta shanti style . Great lazy riverboat that has got some miles on it . There is a sistership also on our dock that has ford Lehman , it's 4o ft .

Greetings,
Mr. PM. Looks neat and well cared for. Deck might be a bit slippery when wet though.

Those classic woodies aren't boats. They are floating art!

Greetings,
Mr. BL. "...floating art." Indeed when they're in pristine condition and those posted are. When less than mint they can easily be floating mold and termite factories. Don't ask how I know...

Agree. To imagine that this was done by an "Engineering Firm" makes me want to hide my diploma. That's hands-down the least desirable craft I've ever seen. A sign "Donald for President" and a coast to coast tour would seem most appropriate.

That's a great Idea, Larry! Coast to Coast tour! With a Bozo clown dancing around and having Don-Don's hairstyle. Unfortunately Trump would likely spin it in his favor.

Welcome to heightened insanity!!

The Ironclad was meant to deflect a cannon ball, and this will deflect radar. Good ideas never get old.

Marty,
No but I know what it is. It was a one off thing factory made houseboat/liveaboard. Read about it some time ago so recall very little but it is a ligitamate Willard.

If it were not for the daily moorage cost, this would be my dream boat to take from Ketchikan to Wrangell Alaska as my golfing home away from home!
The trip alone in such setting would be world quality. Thanks for posting
