toledo canal boat   YouTube

YouTube Clip Says:  Toledo Boat Works launched a new boat Saturday, a B&B of sorts, meaning Boat & Breakfast rental tied up at the port docks. Renter providea their own breakfast, of course! Builder Rick Johnson wants to build three more just like her. The craft, not yet officially named, will now undergo finishing touches to the interior which will sport a single berth in the rear, two doubles in the bow, a table with bench chairs in the middle, gallery and countier, gas stove, water heater, small microwave and small refrigerator. Will run $100-150 a night per Johnson’s “guesstimate.” This first floating B&B canal boat should be ready for occupancy by early August. (thanks to reporter Dan Hohman)  Editor note:  This boat is based upon Escargot by Phil Theil.
