Any cheap deals on auction project salvage houseboats?
Looking at cheap project style houseboats, and like to find any deals on salvage house boats, fire damage, auctions, bank repossessed, or insurance loss claims?
I would like to buy a salvaged houseboat from an insurance lot, possible a sunken house boat, or a burn out fire damaged one.
Where do I start to search for these project boats?
I'm an out of work remodeling contractor, and this would help me out.
Thanks, Jeff Reply - Answer
