    Using round pontoons is a bad idea for THs as easily overloaded and many capsize when everyone rushes to 1 side. They need to go to more sq pontoons that have at least 3x the buoyancy each of the whole boat and go up to the deck. Water weighs 62lbs/cu’
    That said living on the water can be a great low cost life. I did it for 30 yrs and the best part of my life.

      I suppose the best “vehicle” for the home would be to build it on a barge. That way its got a full flat bottom to support the home, instead of just at the edge.
      It’s a cool home and a great idea for a nice little vacation pad that could be easily moved to whatever destination you desire (as long as you don’t want to “sail” to the mountains 😉 )

        Barges are great for THs though one needs to divide it up into separate compartments so if one leaks it doesn’t sink the boat. Same with pontoons as each should have 4-5 compartments.
        Lots of free plans online and an old time way people lived before roads, google Shanty boats for many examples.
        Switch the ones that are not to epoxy plywood and a fiberglass layer underwater and can not just be on water but can be used as a trailer.
        And many coastal/fishing places it is legal to live on a boat on land and always on the water for free.

          Yes, compartmentalization is a priority, but moreso SEALED compartments….no need to relive the Titanic again.
          Having lived near Seattle for almost my whole life, I’m WELL aware of living around the water.
          My thought, originally, was a welded steel barge hull, but your comments got me thinking….why not a Fiberglass hull?
          I used to build fiberglass boats. I know it would be completely feasible.
          ….might look that up.
          Thanks Jerry!
