FOOT ENVY

November 2nd, 2015 · No Comments

On August 8, 2015, RRL and I returned to the Houseboat and gave her a loooong once over…

EEEEEK! What have we done?

The Sellers met up with us to “teach” us how it all works. After all, RRL and I have never owned a houseboat before and we certainly are not skilled boaters to begin with. We do own a small, 18 foot open bow Bayliner.  Which we thoroughly enjoy every summer, but we still are nowhere near master boating experts. #Boatingismyhappyplace

The Sellers purchased the 50 year old mess less than 2 years prior with the intentions of fixing it up, however, they developed what is known in the boating community; a condition known as “Foot Envy”.  Yes, apparently all boat owners eventually discover that they need more SPACE!

The Sellers stopped dead in the water on the renovation plans for this houseboat (see what I did there?) and ran off and bought themselves a 3 story, fully equipped, 60 foot houseboat with 3 full bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. They live at “L” dock and took us for a quick tour. Who has white shag carpeting and full length mirrored walls in a houseboat?? These people do! It’s wonderful! And now, I too, suffer from Foot Envy… Sonofa…

She may be the smallest houseboat on “O” Dock and currently the ugliest, but soon she will be magnificent again! We have so many plans for her re-design, but mostly we envision her overrun with grandkids with sticky popsicle fingers, wet bathing suits and lots of wonderful stories/memories to share. (Hopefully reminiscent of the Limo Adventures!)

(Coming soon: disturbing pre-reno pics.)
