Re: Building The Vera Cruise

:D Looks interesting,Carl.I've been looking at "pinterest" at all the narrowboat interiors and small houseboat ideas to glean what I can get for "Chug and for the next build.It's really hard for me to come up with original ideas.

Re: 1st timer. Boat for Camping?

:D Sometimes,I wish I had built a Small houseboat instead of the Bo-Jest one I'm working on.Something flat-bottomed (Water Lodge)so could use flat bed trailer and could use as camper on land as well as on the water. :D
