My old Dr, and hunting buddy is retireing and won't be useing his Holiday Mansion houseboat anymore. He offered it to my father and I really cheap and they did a really nice restoreation on it, bigger then some of my old summer houses at the shore. It does have a running engine so it isn't a non powered boat. My friend and his wife wanted to split the cost with me to put it in our marina, they're only able togo down on weekends and we fish and stay down mostly weekdays, even if we were all there this thing can sleep 8 people if need be. I was hopeing Harry would let us put it in BZL, John said no, but I really should have talked to Harry, sometimes John has his own rules. There are probably well over 150 big double cabin type live aboards that never leave the slip, so I really don't see the difference. We'd have a big comfortable salon, full galley, outside deck for grilling, it's really nice and the price is right..but BZL would be the cheapest by far to get a slip for it, anyone know of any marinas in the Cape May area that would take a Houseboat in? It's a 13' beam so it will fit in the slip. Just something we were kicking around, especially if we goto a smaller cabin then we now have. since we're going from a Flybridge to an express it will be smaller so we were really thinking about useing the house boat if he would let us. I'd still like to talk with Harry about it when he gets back from FL. any thoughts about useing one for liveing quarters?
