gweilo8888: dittybopper: 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?/great pussy magnet, however.He paid a pound a day for dock space, not a bad deal, and he bicycled to school.And how much did he spend on power? You don't get free power from a 30 quid per month dock, and there's no way in "sunny" England that he had enough power from a small solar panel to run a bilge pump 24/7, let alone the large LCD panels shown in the background. Odds are he was either paying more for services or he was running a generator and filling it with gas or diesel constantly.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.
