Gibson 36' Houseboat (1971) "Freedom"
Purchased in August of 2015, this was my first major boat restoration. I lived on her for five years while also writing a book and developing the business model for Liquid Paradise.
Pictured below are pictures after the restoration was completed. The boat was sold in 5/2020. Her original name was "SeaDog" but I renamed her "Freedom" as she had an American eagle symbol on the flybridge. My son, Joshua, made a wooden American flag which I put on her bow which represented the feeling of freedom I discovered while living upon her and the water.
I have been asked if I also decorated the boat, and the answer is yes. I learned interior decorating from my mother. As you can see, she was an excellent teacher. :) I also did all of the restoration work on the boat.
Sale Price: $27,500 (SOLD)
