The rest, as they say, is history. Once the interior has been updated, this floating home will be the site of the new Seal Once Western States Showroom. Along with the Matthew Turner – another success story: 250 gallons of Seal-once and 25 gallons of Polyurethane were used on the ship's wood framing – N°36 will be a test case to see how this water-based ecological marine-friendly product fares in our somewhat hostile environment.
Interestingly, Tom and Jenny will continue to live there, as the use as a showroom will only occasionally ever be needed. Anticipating a hefty tax hit, the couple plan to convert roughly half of the sale's proceeds to gold bullion, which they'll place under the living room floor. They've been meaning to rebalance their home for a while.
