Houseboat afloat on Styrofoam

Boats afloat: Well, really, it’s a house afloat. An outfit in Port Townsend is building a 2,000-square-foot, 300-ton houseboat that’s kept afloat by concrete-covered Styrofoam. The home, bound for Lake Union in Seattle, could get its sea legs sometime in January. The story is in The Port Angeles Daily News.
