What a great forum guys, so helpful and friendly; But let me get straight to the point so here goes. My family and I are about to embark on a great adventure to live in Canada, emigrating from the UK.
We have played around with a few ideas of getting the best out of our initial settlement and have at this point concluded that purchasing a used houseboat to reside in while we get to grips with our move may be the best financial option.
I'm not a spring chicken and whilst I'm prepared for the challenge, I tend to err on the side of caution so before I make my final decision and go for the boat ads I'd like to ask anyone who is familiar with the BC Shuswap lake area about it.
The cost of a mooring and availability and any other regular costs (other than fuel and maintenance) which might spring up?
Is the availability in any moorings to leave a truck safely and accessible for daily use?
What's the cost of an average survey (before I buy)?
OK, OK, I'm gonna get the ebook but, will it give me those answers?
Living on a houseboat is a challenge I know, but that's the appeal in the first place!!!
All the best to you, Steve Newby (yep, that's really my name)
