Q. Hi, we are going to Gibraltar for Shabbos and they have a hotel there that’s called the Sonburn Hotel. It is a boat that used to be in use. Now they took out the engine and they docked it with metal rods its not going anywhere. Am I allowed to stay there for Shabbos?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is permitted if the boat is firmly attached with the metal bars. However, one is not allowed to carry items in or out from that hotel unless a proper eruv was installed. (See next questions).
