Looks like something I'd find in East Texas


Dear seller, ummm who's idea was it to put the boat into the pool in 1973?

That certainly gets the *** of the day! :purplaugh I can't even imagine why any one would put a house boat in a pool.

Is that a direct drive? Bet it puts out a mean wake. Could be the future of wakeboarding.

I don't know...

I think I like this Houseboat better! (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PONTOON-HOUSEBOAT-11x28-with-TRAILER-WALKAROUND_W0QQitemZ4596471901QQcategoryZ63684QQss PageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) The owner says "You can set the boat down on the trailer and use it for a camper too." All on a homemade trailer that might get you a mile down the road. It fits I guess, the boat is surely homemade too.

I saw this HB in South Carolina, not in a pool... but the pond it is in is no more than 600' long!

Maybe the owners (of both the pool and pond houseboat) loved the water....without ever leaving home?

Hurry up! Only 24 minutes left to bid! It's at about $1,200! It would be a cheap way to get a houseboat. It probably would not be that hard to hoist it out of there with a crane. Our crane operator has lifted some pretty strange stuff. It's all in how it is rigged.

hmmmmm Actually I have 5 acres, with a small pond, where I was planning on building some day. Now the covanants say no out buildings, but there is no mention of house boats. It would be pretty funny, to me any way, to stick a house boat there while I build my home. I'm sure my neighbors would love it. :D
