HOUMA - The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office is offering its 38-foot-long fishing boat for sale on the online auction site eBay.

The Courier reports the starting bid is $180,000. The auction ends May 18.

Since taking office, Sheriff Jerry Larpenter has criticized former Sheriff Vernon Bourgeois' decision to buy the boat.

Larpenter says his office has no use for the luxury fishing boat, and it's too expensive to maintain.

It's not the first time the boat has been up for bid. Previous attempts did not yield a bidder.

Larpenter says if the boat doesn't sell on eBay he will try to sell it in a sheriff's auction June 19-20.
