i recently attended a bbq on a houseboat. all were invited to arrive in time for the sunset.
i'm not sure when it was built, but its occupant's father purchased the thing in the 70s for something outlandish, like what some of us pay for a few month's rent today. i'm glad it has remained in their family. it ain't old like east-coast old, but it's northwest appeal is distinct, that's for sure.
