    I feel that this choice is right for me, traveling by water, wild feeling
    the sun and see. Stock up in the various docks always in different
    places, and be forever free!

      I would love nothing better than running the rivers and living on the water. Great boat and awesome work.

    I’ve often thought through the years that a small houseboat would be a wonderful place to live. Maybe someday I’ll be able to transition to that from my housetruck. Kudos!

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful Waterwoody boat. It’s just beautiful. The different patterns in the woodwork come together just spectacularly! Great job! Thanks so much, I feel your brother would be quite proud of you and what you have accomplished with his gifts. May he rest with the Saviour, Amen

    Not bad for the guys first boat…! I like it.. He’s a pretty talented guy from what I understand about him.. I thought it touching that he named it in honor of his brother, I believe he said…! His paintings are very nice as well… However even though he built his boat, and as much as I like it I don’t believe that he will be able to sell that Houseboat for a $125,000.00, not at only 28 ft. and for the fact he is not an accredited boat builder, it’s the man’s first boat.. I am not saying that it is not worth the money, but I am saying it is not worth the money as a houseboat… You see one of the hardest things to do is to sell a used boat in the first place, secondly it’s only 28″ ft. , and 3rdly it’s his first boat as I had said.. There is a saying when you are a boat owner, or at least not a real boater but a part timer, and that is the happiest day of a boat owner’s life is the day he buys his boat, and the day he sells his boat… Sadly I never felt that way, it saddened me to sell my boats, and at one time I owned 4 at the same time… Oh…! I never got anywhere near what I put into my boats in dollars and cents. I took a lose on almost all of them, with the exception of 1 in which I broke even… But I wish him the best of luck none the less…!
