Asylum, a funkilicious sanpan houseboat


Sharing my err…eclectic boat tastes is becoming an irregular Panbo weekend tradition. This one-of-a-kind wooden boat, bigger here, lives in Thomaston, Maine, and I understand the builder/owner is a crackerjack shipwright at Lyman Morse, one of whose shops is in the background. I’ve not been aboard, but judging from the total absence of antennas, I’d guess Asylum is way off the grid, with an ambiance distinctly different from, say, Friday’s Gunboat.

    Certainly different than the Gunboat.
    Have to wonder which is better though. 😉

    I think he has another boat being built in the upper yard using similar materials.
