    ...and its not even a "luxury yacht"; that description is just crap reporting. 700K does not buy much yacht. We've seen clients that carried 700K boats on their yachts as tenders.

    Pics I've now seen -

    It looks like more of a houseboat than a yacht - and Politifact says he bought it second hand for about 220k.

    Someone may SAY it's worth more - but it's a pittance compared to how some of these guys roll.

    Crap biased reporting trying to make a cheap houseboat sound like something it isn't. The left-liberal types sucking that pablum up don't know the difference..and that's what the attack dogs are counting on.

    We've got our stabilization equipment on a number of yachts..the cheapest one cost nearly 3 million to build yet is "only" 57 feet long. I'd say the average cost of the yachts we've been involved with is something around 10-12 million dollars, but there are many that cost ten times that much.

    CAN'T really blame the left for this one - they may not like that he voted for Kavanaugh, but it's Republicans who have been raising the biggest stink.

    Vote or not, they'd still love to have that West Virginia seat.

    STILL think Manchin ought to drop the pretext and just switch parties.

    I agree...not sure why he didn't do that some time ago.
