Buying a houseboat good idea bad idea that is the question

Buying a houseboat

Good idea bad idea that is the question.

Only one way to find out.

After years of looking at Dutch barges plots of river frontage land I think I may have found it upside 72 ft x 19ft Danish fishing trawler with an18ft x 18ft front room, two double bedrooms and a captains cabin with seperate bedroom toilet and shower, moored on a residential marina in Kent.

Down sides

on a residential marina, previous owners did zero maintenance already showing signs of wear and tare.

Viewing Saturday second viewing Tuesday offer in Wednesday and accepted Thursday.

We now own a boat this is what we got.
