It’s the one first mentioned in this thread. Feast your eyes:

Well it looks like that riverboat looking thingy is the one that had the job opening for sub chapter K captain. But that are no longer accepting applications? Damn, someone beat us to it. Here is the full want add. They want a military guy with 5 years command experience and a Masters degree? I guess when your boat is that pretty you can afford to be choosy.

The sad part is I expect they’re still paying rather low because of the “home every night” aspect.

Don’t you mean, quoting the advertisement here;

“a normal non-traveling marine lifestyle.”

Isn’t the “marine lifestyle” suited for those who don’t mind traveling?

And I take offense at being considered abnormal for my love of a traveling marine lifestyle :grimacing:

Yeah, probably figured they could get someone looking to make a transition to family life for a bargain rate. Sad that mariners are just a warm body to fill a requirement in the eyes of most owners. :confused:

This boat was built as a floating Art / Jewelry Gallery and event sight. I believe it has spuds for when they are along side the dock to prevent rocking. The mooring lines seem small.
Also there are few port lights in the main lounge areas. They prefer artificial lighting to protect the art work…

I worked in the area and rarely saw it leave. Some days it was gone, a few days later it would be back. Never saw it underway. During Art Basel it had parties every night…

All that violent rocking while moored to a dock can be so annoying. Stupid boats…:weary:
