Building a trailerable houseboat, using a Scow type hull
by Mr B
A trailerable houseboat, with a scow type hull, at six weeks
Tips on building a trailerable houseboat using a Scow type hull. These plans have been mine for near 40 years, but no where to build it. Now I have a place to build her, and finally my fantasy has come true.
I have a few more weeks of work to do, and she will be ready for her sea trials. She is 22 ft in length, and just under 8 ft beam.
Setting on a 22 ft trailer I saved from an older RV that I tore apart last summer. Here is a shot of her.

Well Mr B, congratulations and glad to hear that you are presently building her after a 40 year wait. Like you said, it takes a fair amount of space to build a boat, and the time has to be right.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and your photo speaks plenty. It's a real inspiration for people considering building one. I am very glad that you are keeping us posted with your progress.Lastly
