Kristen O'Neil Parlon was amazed to see a land yacht parked on one of Roslindale's narrow streets last night:
As if finding a parking space is not hard enough in Boston.
Is a very large luxury car, similar to a town car, continental or other over-sized vehicle. Think 1976 Cadillac Sixty Special.
It may also refer to a motor-home.
Thats just a boat on a trailer imo.
A neighbor parks his boat in front of his house for one night and you complain. Thank god you're not my neighbor.
Yeah, it actually doesn't look bad from the picture. Plenty of spots. Maybe someone who lives on that street can correct me.
I bet Adam thanks god for that fact as well.
Parking isn't that hard in most of Rosi when snow is gone. If it sits there long-term, you'd have a legit beef. But if theres still room to pass and the owner just needed to park it there for a night or two while getting it ready to put into the water, I say be a gracious neighbor and let it go. You're not supposed to be flying down one-and-a-half lane streets anyway.
(ftr, I am not a boat owner and we have a neighbor a few doors down the block who parks his boat on the street occasionally at season's start/end).
I give the guy credit for putting out the reflective cones as well.
Saw one in Southie parked like this for a month last year. Submitted a report on citizens connect and the city just said meh were not gonna do anything
And the boat is registered, i'm really not sure there is anything they can do. Unless there's an ordinance against trailer parking that I'm not familiar with.
(I'm probably more of an expert on parking laws than the average person, but) does anyone know if it's legal to park a boat trailer on the street in Boston?
Because it's actually the best of all space savers in Boston.
I actually grew up a handful of doors away from where this picture was taken. I think that there aren't any regulations against this. Notice the chock on the tire, precautions were taken by the person who parked this boat, good job. The street is definitely wide enough to accomadate this boat. No to dig up history but if the guy who lived across the street in about 1966 took as much care, his car would not have rolled down one Sunday morning into our new Chevy while we were at church. His car was a junker, there were several folks with similar cars on this block. I think my Dad was always in the the top three. Several years ago we lived in a development that had a homeowners association with rules. One of the rules was no parking of trailers in the driveway, but the street belonged to the city. The HOA president tried to get me to park my trailer somewhere else, and I replied that I could buy an old school bus, paint it like then one on the Partridge Family show and store my lawn mower, etc all summer long. This particular city had an overnight parking ban Nov - Apr for snow removal. I would not bother this boat owner.
That's my spot. I shoveled it out back in December for my boat and put my cones out, then this a**hole has the [email protected] nerve to park his boat in the spot.
I swear to God, if that boat is in my spot when I get home from work with my boat, I'm gonna start poking holes in the hull.
