Here is one for the real dreamer in all of us. Restore your own Navy ship! That’s right, you can now be your own Navy, you can recruit others, invade ACBS Chapters, run blockades on other marinas. mmmmm I could take over Lake Wahtever-I-wanna-call-it! But first you have to get the non running diesel going. No sweat according to the seller. And you may want to paint the boat, A gallon or two of paint.. I have heard, that you can use porch latex paint on the top sides BTW.. Really, not kidding. It has a flex agent in it. And of course comes in any color you decide you want your Navy to be in.
Just think, if you act fast you could not just show up at Lake Dora, you could invade it! Make a deal with the sea plane guy and you got your self air support. mmmm, I am liking this.. A Woody Boater invasion on Lake Dora…. I could hook up some T shirt cannons and bombard the coast line with propaganda! I am now supreme Admiral of the Navy of Woody Boaterville. Thank you Craigslist! Anyone know how to get a Diesel going? Here is the listing. And if the listing is gone, here is the sellers description! It’s only $30K, maybe it comes with a 29K hammer!
