Guess he didn't hear it's bad luck to change the name of a boat... This all could've been prevented...

IF you could get something like that cheap enough it would make a great self propelled camp.

I can tell you that it looked a lot worse then the pictures show.

This just in; Dont know where the thing started out but these pictures were taken today by an acquaintance of mine on Motts Channel near Wrightsville Beach. Can't be certain but the motors appear to be running, and the boat is still floating. Anyone know how far it has traveled thus far?

Started in Mansquan Inlet, NJ on (i think) october 1. Those engines pushed that thing over 500 miles.

I think it was a nice boat before and will be nice again when finished. It is a dream boat for sure from where I sit.

Despite my somewhat negative comments on this endeavor I think it's pretty cool. Horribly expensive, but still cool.

Glad they made it down to Wrightsville, the tougher part of the journey south should be behind them now.

I wonder how many beers they've gone through in 500 miles x 10 kts?

I wish we could get the real E true Hollywood story on this one.

It's just hard,to believe that they got the boat put of the water (with all that damage) mounted outboards to it...then put it BACK in the water to move it?!?!?!?!?

Why didn't they just cut the bridge and tower off and truck it. Seems it would have been a whole lot safer. Of course, in typing this, I'm thinking it may not actually be possible to truck such a large load that far.

THT is a big group of people...someone's got the real story and plan on this.

Looks like 5 drums of gas in the back.

Would be a fun trip with the right guys and endless amount of beer.

They are probably turning all the blades....

I don't really care what anyone says, the guy who bought this aparently has a dream and he's doing it. Kudos to the owner, and godspeed to the guys moving this pig.

I think they are getting their money's worth from their BoatUS tow policy. Could the drums be Yamalube?
