AverageAmericanGuy: Those docks have showers?
EvilEgg: You don't get a yacht for 800 you get a boat. How much does he pay in slip fees and other sundry costs associated with keeping a boat?
orbister: dittybopper: . That's not a yacht. It's a sailboat. If it cost less than a decent used car, it's not a 'yacht'.If you can sleep in it without putting a tent up, it's a yacht. It may or may not also be a sailing boat.
dittybopper: So is this a 'yacht'?:
orbister: dittybopper: So is this a 'yacht'?:If used solely for pleasure purposes, yeah, why not?
dittybopper: orbister: dittybopper: So is this a 'yacht'?:If used solely for pleasure purposes, yeah, why not?Yes, well, I *AM* the U-boat Commander of Love, so sure, I guess it would qualify.
FarkinNortherner: gweilo8888: I don't believe for one second that he spent less living in a boat -- even a ratty one like that -- than he'd have spent on a room of similar size and condition somewhere equally out of the way.I do - although there are obviously boat-specific costs you'd struggle to find a room in a shared house for less than £30 a week, I pay £87 pcm to power my entire house (and my bathroom is bigger than his boat.)
dittybopper: He would have spent most of his time on the campus of the university, so his power requirements would be pretty minimal except on the weekends. LED lighting is pretty efficient, and even regular lighting isn't going to be an issue during the day, in a boat that small.
gweilo8888: And to heat the boat, which is by its very nature not efficient to heat. (But a sleeping bag in *average* lows of mid 30s for six months of the year ain't going to cut it.)
