I found this forum when I did a search on how to evaluate older houseboats.
I am interested in acquiring an older houseboat to keep at the slip for occasional overnight use. I have an 18 foot pontoon I use for fishing but it is too small for overnight stays.
I am seeing some of the older houseboats where the engine does not work or in some cases, has been removed.
I wonder how you can price these houseboats when the engine is missing or does not work. I asked about cost to repair on a Gibson and was told that parts were no longer available so repair was not an option.
So can anybody provide any suggestions or guidelines on pricing on older houseboats where the engines are missing or no longer work?
