Great looking houseboat!
Harry Bryan designed a SHANTYBOAT that is just about the thing I'd like to build. The size is just about right and the character of the design lovely. It defies the stereo type of a trailer on the water and is keeps it's boat nature in the shape of the hull.
Though this boat in the picture above is lovely it does not give the impression that it would move willingly or in anything but very calm conditions. The SHANTYBOAT that Bryan drew and built looks as though it wants to move, a little bit, and I find that very appealing.
As I make the cabin of my fiberglass cruiser into a warm and inviting home I still can afford to dream about other boats and projects. Dreams are free, mostly.
