What do you think the broker’s choice would be to do with this vessel? His actual words in red below!

After a long and varied career she was taken to Liverpool, England, for extensive repairs, and then towed to Spain where the refit was completed to a high standard and then opened to the public as a floating cocktail lounge/function room in 1996. Today, she is moored in one of the Costa del Sol’s premier marina and remains as floating cocktail lounge/function room. Benefiting from her position marina in the and low cost mooring she could be viewed as prime real estate with a total of 2400square meters of usable floor area which could be converted to a hotel, restaurant, heath club, conference centre, offices [B][I][U]or my favourite choice which I can’t mention on this web site[/U][/I][/B]. She has no engines but if you were thinking about moving her she has over 20 ballast tanks below decks which can be filled to enable her to be towed long distances by sea. These boat details are subject to contract. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

HHHHMMMMM…could it be something that would involve removing the starboard sidelight?

Didn’t there used to be a place like that on the ICW just outside Morgan City?

This aint no shit!!
An ancient mariner told me a yarn about his first week on the boat near St. Louis.
He said they pulled up to a dock in the river and there was some trailers up on the levee. This old lady came out and hollered at him, "Is that Capm’ Kenny up there?"
He said that he told her that it was Captain Ken. and she replied, “You tell that SOB that we ain’t tradin no more Pussy for no more roast.”
