Thank you for chronicling such an important moment in time of the Sausalito houseboat scene, a time that surely will never be seen again.

Sounds like the California equivalent of Christiania Freetown in Copenhagen. Love it

Loved getting a complete history lesson.

Enjoyed various parties on Gate 5 & 6 in the '80s.

I lived on Kappas Dock for about 18 months in the mid '90s.

Thanks

Anutha winnah, X. Life at the quirky margins can be rife with misadventure of the good kind and sundry. And your Ramses II is sexy.

I visited Slab City and East Jesus, out near the Salton Sea, which has very much the spirit and vibe you describe. A mix of Capitalist- and drug-casualties, independent thinkers, obnoxious cranks, and just plain outsiders in a barren dusty plain...thousands of RVs and frail addenda, surrounded by junk, art, and both. Worth a visit, and a ponder, as 'the last free place in America.'
