    one of the reasons I give up some money to let a broker sell my boats is to avoid the after-sale 'customer service'. I make it easy on buyers, I've never not once in my life ever called the PO of anything I've bought used.

    We've had our SkipperLiner for 10 years now. And we still have 3 other boats. And I do all my own work. Glutton for punishment I guess...

    Actually, I need to update my signature!

    Just hope you don't get any midnight "how do I unclog the head?" calls.

    My husband and I are beginning to plan for retirement. We are contemplating downsizing... One of our options is a houseboat. Seeking advice.

    We spent 7 years living aboard. Best years of our lives. I regret selling the boat to this day. only suggestion is 50 foot minimum and covered slip.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.

    Lyby,
    Bear in mind that a houseboat while smaller is a LOT more complicated than a house. Maintaining it can be an act of love or an endless hassle, depending on your skills and inclination.
