    There might be a pretty little boat under that alligator paint job.

    Somehow reminds me of Alan Arkin's character in The In-Laws who is having a conniption fit because there are "flames on my BMW!"

    $400 is about as low as it goes any more. What can you get for $400? Most people don't think of cutting plywood or opening a can of paint now that kids get ipads in grade school.

    Here's a quick link to boats on craigslist in various cities.

    A mere $5.5k will get you the Didik Arctic Explorer -

    You know, I've seen folks on this forum complain about some of the, er, forward thinking edgy styling/only pretty picture yacht designs that come our way ... but how many realize and express thankfulness that relative (to making one-off cars) cost to build means the odd abomination rarely ever gets made?
