A Love of Boats (3 per day)

A Group for whole boats and parts of boats

When a Boat is not for Sailing

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

Something different.

Challenge is to find boats that are not used for sailing on any type of water and can no longer be used for being on the water.

No wrecks. The boat should be used for a different purpose, so needs to at least have a whole hull

Maybe the boat is used for playing as in the cover image, or perhaps it has a garden in it, maybe it is used as a museum, let’s see what you can find.

Remember we are looking for non-functional non-floating boats – boats that cannot be used on the water in any circumstances

Have fun hunting
