Big Chicken - fair guess he has the voids filled with a lighter than water gas like say methane it keeps the ply from Homo Depot dry. LOL

He would have been better off just finding some place up in Butte County to park it probably would have been a nice house then again water space is free right?

He will probably just anchor in Richardson bay for a while as a free houseboat. First good winter storm will have him on the breakwater unless he has some serious ground tackle.

Perhaps he could grab some gear from the mothball fleet.

Marin County should collect all of his personal info now - so when they end up covering the recovery costs or clean up bill they know who and where to send the bill.

 
at least he's realistic

He doesn't plan on coming back.
the ocean puts out much stress per inch

The BIGer they come ....................................................

dude should have made it out of ferro cement

and designed it in the shape of a fish habitat

how about starting with an old navy barge / structure ??

Is it just me, or does that look like your standard pine 2x4s and interior grade plywood?

and seriously 700-800lbs of screws? SCREWS? This guy might have looked at 1000's of yachts - but it does not appear that he spoke to one boat builder
