King, with the tanks you get for salvage at times, your ability to patch or change out complete panels on the salvaged boat will be a snap.

It looks like your fuel tanking/deliveries problems have been solved. It will make a nice tender as you get your pontoon platform for salvaging up to par.

Nice haul.

Please, please, keep us updated on this undertaking.

thansk guys, it is 40 feet by 11.5 feet, southern belle has plans for a fancy bedroom in the basement of the boat. she wants it to be a cabin that floats around and enjoys the view.

KoO,

Calling that a boat might be stretching the truth a bit. But it is a good start.

Reminds of some of the "crafts" I saw floating in the Straits of Malacca.

KoO, I give you three weeks and you'll be out trying to salvage what's left of the Titanic...


At what point (size) do they start becoming yachts instead of "boats"?? Nice find on that one!
