 Fair market rent for Duke-Stir

There's an interesting article by the North County Times by William Finn Bennett (6/27/2005) on the fair market rent for Duke-Stir.

The fair rent would be $600/month, in addition to the usual docking fees and maintenance.

Beyond the Duke-Stir's, "$600/month, in addition to the usual docking fees and maintenance," I wonder about his 65ft. yacht, the Kelly C.

How much is it costing, and who is paying for the reported Kelly C. "refurbishing" while he lives aboard the Duke-Stir?

Yachts are expensive enough without having to pay for two at the same time.

Duke-Stir, the boat owned by Mitchell Wade and Cunningham's DC home, used to be owned by a gay couple (see registration info above)

After Wade bought the boat and the Duke started using it, around April 2004 (to Duke's statement of 6/23/2005), the Duke got razzed about the gay-themed boat name at the Capitol Yacht Club, so he changed the name to the Duke-Stir.

The previous owner of the Duke-Stir (the yacht Mitchell Wade bought for Cunningham to live on), was Scott Schramm. He also was the founder of the "Potomac Rainbow Cruisers."

They are a group of gay and lesbian power boaters, located in the same Capital Yacht Marina as the Duke-Stir formally named "Buoy Toy" — is now berthed.
