    Iím BACK Baby!!!

    Well I have finally gotten back into owning a houseboat. I just closed on a 1973 Pluckebaum Rivermaster 50í x 16í with twin 454s.

    I believe I am the 3rd owner of the boat. The last owner had this boat for over 30 years.

    I first spoke to the owner about this boat over 5 years ago and seriously considered buying it 3 years ago. After being disappointed with a Kingscraft in Tennessee, I called the owner to make a deal. This boat has always been in my head as a boat I wanted to own and itís finally mine. The bones and running gear are solid but the interior needs a complete refit.

    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for!
