it cost about $1,275 new

of course, i build them for far cheaper

this came with nothing but a primered frameset

all the rest of it i put together and did the paint and decals

i such a proud sucker

That's a great bike Rog! hi5.gif I plan on taking both our cycles apart cleaning, painting etc over the fall. They way things are working it looks like we may be here a few more months, but we managed to get out of the city and refuse to rely on a car all the time, way too expensive.

Hey Jay
Thats what i did

I just bought a P14 runabout 14 ft. Boat with a small outboard on it, and i now have
the way to get back and forth to the Sailboat i just bought last week.

i use the P14 as a tender for the sailboat is all ( saves on fuel )
and i have the Sailboat anchored out away from everyone


The P14 holds both my Bike and Beepers Bike Trailer, so we can come ashore
hook the bike and trailer up to each other,,,, and


heh heh, i'll beat shit out of the Oil Corps yet.

I'll post a photo in a moment of them.

I'll post a photo of the Sailboat and Beepers when i get the photos tomorrow.

The P14 came with Title and Tags
but no engine or trailer

so i bought a Evinrude 15hp for $100 that is 30 years old and it had never been mounted or used on any boat.

Cost of tender with outboard : $175

Cost of 22 foot Columbia Sailboat : $300

Total Investment of a live aboard home and transportation to and from the home: about $500

wait till you see the free boat on Craigslist posted about an hour ago

I get the photo and be back

Hey that's a nice boat for 75 blink.gif We're on a lookout for a little boat like that. Problem is people around here tend to fix their own things so not many cool finds like that, and some of the things for sale are some really creative redneck constructions that I'm not sure I'd like to go fishing in chuckle.gif

Very sweet! hi5.gif What a great boat for nothing!
Octo and I would love to run across that! She's right though, people make some crazy wielded things that look like submarines with an outboard motor.
I wouldn't get too far from land on what we've seen so far. chuckle.gif

Oh and there is the other extreme


Seriously wtf2.gif

chuckle.gif Sweet! That picture's actually taken here in town where the duck boat was made to begin with. In fact, it's technically a floating sauna 13.gif

BAAAWAAA hah ha ha

now i know where the Oregon Ducks Mascot flew off to.

Man you guys, i come across FREE BOATS everyday here

if you told me you'd be here real soon, i'd
take my Van and a borrowed trailer over there and grab that Cabin Cruiser for you

after all,,, it would be free rent for you two for as long as you wished to live aboard it.

for small 14 foot to 18 or even 23 foot boats FREE
there are at least two a week,, many have no title, but boat titles are easier to get then lost Car titles.

hang on and i'll post some craigslist links to free boats

there, thats 3 free boats in one day.

whatever the boats need, i am sure i can get it cheap as a beet.

I get them at auction for about $10 to $50 all the time if i choose to.

if they are in too bad a shape, i salvage the good stuff off of them and get a good free boat and transfer it over
