  1. It'd make a fantastic floating Brothel, or private "Smoky-Drinky" Club, FE ... :)

  2. I bet that chap that loves to annoy his po-faced neighbours with military vehicles parked out front wishes he had a big garden pond...

  3. At a scrap steel price of, say, $100/ton, you can have it for just under a million.
