Default Biggest air shot of all time! My boat!

Check out my 40 ft houseboat being slung around like a rag doll! She sank 2 weeks ago and we finally got her up , beached , leveled , hauled out and scrapped! I got $753.00 of scrap for her. What an ordeal!

No insurance.....it was sad see all my personal stuff floating around. I'm over it now just glad to see it out of the water and gone. Several people told me to just go out at night and sink her in deep water and I refused to do it.
