only 5% to go before its finished ? BARGAIN !

So if the sale price is $4k, another paltry $200 should pay for the entire rig. Make an offer of $4200 and sail it away....

Someone should tell HR who is struggling with that last few percent of completion. The cost of that last 5% is always the deal killer...

That boat has or had a tripod style mast which you can see in the pics. It is like a those big radio antennae towers. I guess it didn't work to well. He has dropped the price in half so buy it now! :D

hmm, a windmill tower set on top of a pair of alloy taco shells. Can you imagine trying to sleep in that thing with any sort of a wave pattern pounding the sides..... Youd almost forget how cold you were.... but not quite.

well, suicide isn't illegal.

From which country are you posting?

 

In 99.9% of the world suicide is very much illegal.

 

If committing suicide is illegal, who do they charge if you succeed?

Sailed yesterday (pretty damn cold but sunny and breezy), motored in the channel past FH, no signs of life but still floating. No big wind in the forecast, but could dip below freezing tonight, perhaps the blackwater tank will rupture and sink her in shit from the inside out?

Let me try that again: Attempted Suicide is illegal.

 

Generally they toss you in a pleasant "hospital" with locked doors and guards for psychiatric evaluation.

The hulls look like they're splaying apart. And the back porch roof is sagging. Someone is missing their dock boxes back at the marina. Wow, look at those shitty back steps! And where's the Harliesaki?

Actually I think he did say he had studied thousands of cat designs... But then again, I have no plan to dig through this thread to find out.

But FH Junior is still there after the rough trip up the 405. :D

 

The original FH Jr was a Bayliner I/O runabout. This dink is FH Sub-Jr, I think it's the one that was -not- being paddled by a shovel in a pic from the marina follies. Now it looks like it has a British Seagull, which I would tend to think of as a step down the evolutionary chain from being paddled with a shovel.

Careful,

 

I still remember maneuvering my dads Moody 29 around Poole town quay, using a seagull clamped to the swim ladder.

The harbour master was not at all impressed, but the diesel was dead, and he had already told us how unhappy he was with the idea of us docking under sail....

To rectify this craft, has anyone suggested converting it to a liveaboard houseboat. The rig and rudders would have to go, and dual outboards would be needed for propulsion. Seems the best use of this hull, IMHO,

Seriously, longer term can the boat be salvaged? Sell the rig, get some decent outboard power, I dont know, 60hp from a folding down central support. Reinforce the crossbeams with more depth and carry that structure to the outside of the hulls. Throw away the rudders, add bulkheads say 5ft from the bow, 3ft from the stern. Turn it into a nice houseboat, move it up to Vancouver area picking a nice weather window (not easy), then sell it as a very nice large comfortable houseboat.

 

As a houseboat it would sell quite easily I would have thought, lots of space, privacy, stability. You just need a sheltered cove somewhere for long term mooring.

 

The voyage from SF to Vancouver would not be fun, but if you picked your weather window it should be OK

 

i think it would make a really nice houseboat. Probably biggest error was in building in SF and not Seattle

no way is FH ever going to see major work done to it up on a ramp somewhere. Thats megabucks. A good example of not thinking ahead is failing to consider exactly he is going to re antifoul it and fix the holes in the bottom properly. Pounding on the mud is not a long term structural integrity solution.

nothing short of indoor storage will make it safe for habitation, and probably not even then

I think it would make a good houseboat. If it was moored somewhere out of the way, where the waves only reach 2ft high,,, take it there and leave it there. It should last 10 years or so,, before it rots away. Places like this I assume are not easy to find

Easy there James - the FH wouldn't survive being moved in anything but mirror pond conditions and no way the FH would ever survive getting hauled out of the water.

 

The FH will never leave its current location on its own bottom.

Thanks for the kind words,,, (sacrasm),,, bye the way, I can yell, swear, curse quite well. I just choose not to. Anyone would have thought I was suggesting digging up your deceased relatives from the graveyard and using them as fertilizer on the fields (something they did with english war dead in the nineteenth century - true story). I think the boat is awful,,,, might it survive as a houseboat,,, maybe,,, as a yacht its beyond a joke,

 

Obviously here people have a different way of expressing themselves from woodenboat forum (where I have been for 10 years and your name sounds familiar actually - and if it was the same James where I thought u were an OK guy,). So James ... no I am not flying half way across the world to move the 'craft'. Even if you wanted me to and paid me to do it, I would not. (because it seems risky to me,, and I dont think the boat gives me confidence).

Australians are descended from convicts, and proud of it. So we like to look out for the under dog, whereas in US it seems you like to pi** on them and charge them for the privelidge. The boat is truly awful. As a houseboat it could well provide good cheap accommodation for a decade or two, provided it was kept in a quiet backwater. Someone said they dont allow liveaboards in the SF delta,,,if this is not correct it makes sense to go there, if they dont allow liveaboards there,, then where does it go? Do they scrap it ,,, or take a punt to move it somewhere ,.... hey theres an idea,,, publish your address and HR will know where exactly to moor it, so that your harbour views are suitably enhanced and you can have some more neighbours to chat with.... hey that sounds fun

 

The boat is total crap,,,, OK,,, u happy now, have thought that from day one.
