I recently finished the complete refit of a 1994 Sumerset Houseboat that sank at her mooring over at Halls; no I am looking to sell shares on the boat and would be thrilled to have some Wayne's Words Board members buy in. Full listing details are below. I will also be chronicling the refit of the boat on my new blog (www.thecaptainsblog.net) if you are interested; I have two posts up about the refit so far and think I will be posting about it every other month with other content posted in the other months. If you're interested, let me know.

1994 Sumerset 65’ x 14’ Houseboat, several shares available. Moored in covered slip at Bullfrog Marina. Complete refit was finished in 2016 with all new systems throughout. This boat is like new and will offer you everything you could want in a multi-ownership houseboat on Lake Powell; see below for listing of all options.

There are 16 ownership shares in the Serenity and annual fees are set at a reasonable $1,800. Fees should generate a reserve fund for future repairs and, since everything is new, there shouldn’t be any special assessments in the near future. Week numbering starts on the Saturday following the first Wednesday of January, with weeks 21-38 being primary ownership weeks. Additional weeks are available off season for $100/night on a first come basis ($50/night if the houseboat does not leave the slip). The following shares are currently available at the indicated price:

-Week 33 (18-Aug through 25-Aug, 2018), $8,000, Contact Bob Guerra at 303-913-0749 or sheguerra1@yahoo.com

Purchase is subject to ownership approval. We are looking to build a strong ownership group on a great boat.

Really like the website for your boat. Trying to talk my ownership group into something similar. Our ownership roster is full, so we don't need it for sales, but I love the idea of having all of the information about the boat in one place - and accessible online. Good job!

Yeah, the website is a standard weebly format and I was pretty impressed with how easy it was to set-up using their website building tools. The hosting is free if you just use the weebly domain (e.g. xyz.weebly.com), but you also have the option of paying for a domain name and hosting through them.

Thanks. I've been trying to update this listing as shares sell, but we're down to just 4-shares available. A few of our members are knocking around these message boards too.

Off topic, but I have enjoyed your blog. I hope you keep posting.
Thanks, I wasn't sure if anyone was reading it or not, but am hoping to keep posting about once every month. I've been alternating between the houseboat refit and other topics (mostly the work I did on rebuilding my 1962 Lone Star).

P.S. I saw your little boat in the parking lot this winter. Took some pics cause I loved the name and it seemed like a fun little runabout. Nice work on fixing it up!
