Great looking boat VP. Seems like it needs a little love.

I agree with Luis, it does need some love.

I never realized there was so much below the water line. An unusual shape indeed. A strange yacht.

I hope it isn't left to rot. I wish I had enough money to buy a tug, converted or not, and live on it.

It looks like the souvenir boats sold in places near the sea:)

This is exactly how I like my boats VP...out if the water, and no scary 'things' swimming around underneath!! It certainly does have a rather different shape to it, good shot.

It's superb photo, and beautiful boat, even without water!

As if a tsunami had taken the boat out of water.

Is it being repaired? An interesting view on the boat... not one we get every day!

Non sapevo si potesse cambiare nome ad una imbarcazione!!!!!!!!!!

A boat on dry dock has a forlorn look about it...sort of like a fish out of water.
