|“||The only problem with living on a boat is that your house can float away. Or rock back and forth. Or sink. Or... actually there's lots of problems with living on a boat. [src]||”|
Elbone's House Boat is the ship and domicile of Elbone.
In "The Nest", Elbone is seen working on his mast when Chief Duggard arrives to introduce the Rescue Riders. Elbone is surprised enough to almost fall off, but Cutter shoots his spines into the mast to form a ladder. Later, Cutter again saves Elbone's House Boat by splitting a flying log in two before it can crash into it.
In "Divewings", Elbone used his boat to throw trash into the ocean. Upon realizing the harm he was doing, Elbone used his boat to collect back all the trash.
In "Puff Enuf", the Rescue Riders couldn't find Elbone in the village, so they checked his house boat. Not finding him there, they decided to look for him around the island, in case he might have been in danger.
In "Hot, Hot, Hot", Elbone got sick and had to stay in his house boat to recover.
In "King Burple", Elbone used a wooden anchor instead of a normal one, which caused his house boat to float away. It eventually got stuck on Flyhopper Island, where it was later found by the Rescue Riders. The team helped Elbone guide the boat back to Huttsgalor.
In "Belly Flop", Elbone used his boat to travel far from Huttsgalor, so that he could catch certain types of fish for Leyla and Burple. While returning to the shore, Elbone was knocked overboard and accidentally swallowed by a Sea Gronckle. The boat neared Huttsgalor and almost had an impact with a smaller boat, but was fortunately stopped by the Rescue Riders.
This section requires expansion.
Elbone's House Boat is a large, longship-style boat with a single mast and a single, wide desk. Situated on top of the desk at the back end is a simple hut-style building that presumably serve as living quarters. The ship has a dragon figurehead, and a series of fish decorate the sail.
Elbone's House Boat serves as the living space for Elbone, presumably in the section that mimics a Viking hut.
As a sea-faring vessel, Elbone's House Boat can sail to various ports.
Elbone is an excellent fisherman and utilizes his house boat for this task.
