Boat Transporting Up Close
We have some neighbors now that have a business of transporting houseboats. I never thought about how one is moved across the country. This one was taken out of Lake Cumberland here in Somerset, KY, and delivered to Lake Tenkiller in OK. Quite a far piece to travel and they traveled during the snowy part of January. This boat is 18 X 90. I went aboard and couldn't believe how nice it was. The bathrooms were bigger than mine here at home and even had double sinks! There are 3 levels. I can't imagine being able to buy something like that. It has 5 bedrooms.
He told me that with the economy that this boat sold for a lot less than it normally would have. I guess that is the case with lots of things right now. I guess the upside to that is that someone else was able to purchase it and have it transported all that distance, and it still be within their price range.
They have to take all that stuff off until it's down to the carpet. Then when they get there they have to put it all back together again. Sure is a lot of work involved. They are called "Dreams in Motion" and are on Facebook with lots of photos. In fact, I got the one of it going into the water at Lake Tenkiller from their site. I'm sure they don't mind.
This was right out of Lake Cumberland they are getting ready to take the 2 top stories off and get it ready to move. This is where I went to see it and went aboard, and then they explained how they had to take the top 2 levels off for transporting.
This last photo is the one I got from their site showing it going back into the water to its new home on Lake Tenkiller in OK, after being all put back together. I thought this was interesting and I hope you all did too!
