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.

Thanks, Mr. B

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, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their trailerable houseboat building experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.
