Chowan River: The Quest to Find a House for our Boat

In a cloud of temporary insanity, we decided to purchase a small boat that we found a great deal on Craigslist. Of course, we didn’t think of logistics to owning a boat: where it will live, where are we going to use it, how do we maintain it, etc, but we geekishly bought it anyway.…
