    When I bought this boat over a decade ago I didn't think I would make a chicken coop out of it.

    Thanks! I decided because the boat had sat in the backyard for almost 10 years and I never got to making it seaworthy. So it occurred to me that it would make a great coop with a lot less work than trying to make it float. So now in my backyard instead of an eyesore I have a cool chicken coop to show off.

    This is really cool. I can see you had a lot of fun with the boat-to-coop evolutionary process. How did you come to decide to make a coop out of the boat?
