    What a great idea to have this contest. I really enjoy the concept and submissions. Have you seen the houseboats that my old boss, Andy Vavolotis isbuilding at Robinhood Marine? He has several built and moored out off his marina. He rents them out by the week. They may not have enough wood to please you guys however.

    Say hello to Maynard for me.
