ABSTRACT
The article discusses the court case Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach which attempts to clear the muddy wake left behind a long line of cases determining vessel status in the U.S. The Supreme Court found that Lozman's houseboat is not a vessel but serves as the statutory phrase capable of being used as a means of transportation on the water. Further, the court failed to bind to a consistent test for vessel status.
