    What is the law regarding non-motorized floating vessels... is one free to live on a raft and move at the whim of the tides? This could be the up and coming hipster thing to do. Might be a little spooky at night hearing the drone of a 100 ton freighter coming down the shipping lane though.

    We saw that for the first time today, I loved the Minn Kota powered foam Harley parked at the dock, really seem to add to the whole ambience of the place!

    Cool. I'm a big fan of shanty boats.

    This one was designed by an acquaintance of mine, Phil Thiel.

    But are these things "self-contained," or do they just use a bucket or have a hole in the deck?:eek:

    Not to worry... the bureaucracy will put a stop to it sooner or later.
