Re: Aluminum houseboat hull

Jeff,
We are looking at the one level concept as a big plus for our old bodies and dogs!

I haven't looked at this vessel yet, but may next month if it is still for sale. I will want to see it out of the water.

Aluminum houseboat hull

I'm looking at aluminum houseboats - mostly Marinette & Kingscraft. I found one that has been remodeled but hull was refurbished in an odd fashion. The hull was completely sandblasted down to raw aluminum. The owner repaired what they call minor pitting along with a small hole into the water tan...
