Riviera Beach http://wlrn.org en Supreme Court: Floating Home Still A Man's Castle http://wlrn.org/post/supreme-court-floating-florida-home-still-mans-castle The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a Florida man's floating home was a house, not a boat, and that therefore, the city marina where he kept it docked could not seize the structure under federal maritime law. The case could affect thousands of houseboat owners nationwide.<p>Actually, the facts of Fane Lozman's case sound like something from <em>The People's Court,</em> not the Supreme Court. Lozman bought the 60-by-12-foot floating home for $17,000 and totally remodeled it to look and feel like a house on water.
