Found the Worst Boat Ever?

Recommended Posts

I saw a very strange looking boat appear in facebook marketplace feed. I messaged the seller to ask for more pics of this monstrosity and oh boy did he deliver.  I couldn't keep this delicious insanity all to myself. Behold!

Outside looks to made of play-dough?

I'm fairly certain everything is just covered in many many layers of polyester resin and cloth. You know for extra strength....

That's what I thought - bought a run down or rotted boat and just stated laying on the glass.

If all the human effort that goes into all the garbage like that could be gathered and channeled we could achieve world peace AND send an expedition to Mars.

Methinks the bootstripe is a little optimistic and nowhere close to reality. If you could borrow it for a day it might be fun to have a contest predict the waterline. Five dollars a guess and the winner takes the pot.

A.  It will roll over and sink when it splashes.

B.  Lewis Francis was correct when he called it "Frozen Snot".

When I saw the picture of the transom, that was my first thought. I assumed it was meant as a novelty.

Project 90% complete. Just needs a little sanding and paint.

:D Everyone knows sanding and painting is the easiest and least time consuming part of boat building.

Brent Swain has moved on to fiberglass, recognizing that not everybody wants a steel boat.

I admire the way he has even encased the steering wheel in whatever shit he was using...

that's pretty messed up considering all the work they've put into that place recently. fresh paint, steel dinosaurs in the freshly manicured topiary yard, etc

Makes you wonder wtf the plan was?  Just got carried away glassing?  Planned to spend the next decade sanding grinding and filling?   Really liked the smell of polyester resin and just couldn't stop wrapping?  Even the handrails, that's just cruelty.

What's that peg boardy stuff on the settee? That really make the whole boat look crappy.

And what's that smooshed marshmallow thing? For that matter WTF is 99% of this thing made out of? The only identifiable thing in the photo is the tupperware container lid and I don't see what it's purpose is.

Whoever made this also made an economy car at one time.

A car with a sticker price of one hundred seventy nine dollars!

Ventilation for the lockers. :lol:  Actually the most sensible thing on the boat and still dumb.  Marshmellow is possibly a roll of glass(mat or more likely knytex since I see knytex elsewhere).   That's all fiberglass. On  every surface.  Just badly applied, in areas it has no business being, by someone who is either deliberately stupid, completely unaware of what they are doing, or mentally ill.

I’m going for mentally ill, nobody in there right mine would fibreglass a whole boat like that including the wheel.   :wacko:

So, is it a redecked catalina? It doesn't look like he(assuming he) touched the hull. Now where does the pesky keel go...Is it even intended to be sailboat?

This thing's a serious safety hazard.

Imagine being stuck with glass splinters when you're reaching for this grab bar.  I've seen ferocement boats turned out better than this piece of shit.

Sometimes I wonder about Roe v. Wade.  Even though abortion is legal under the constitution, the people who need it the most chose not to exercise their right.....

You could build a new 40 ft  boat with all of that resin and glass. All you would need is the foam core. I wonder if he lost his mind before or after all of that time & money was spent.

That boat is definitely in the top 10 of SA fuckups

Wilma! I found the perfect boat! We’ll have to  drive through the night to get there, but it’ll be worth it-trust me!

Right, Barney, little buddy?!

Seriously though, when you flip it right side out, it has a wonderful smooth gel coated surface and perfect interior joinery

This one previously appeared in the Mocking Craigslist thread in Cursing Anarchy, along with many other mockworthy boaty things.
