Hi all, i have been looking into getting a live aboard boat for about 18 months now and have seen some lovely boats ( anyone else at crick the other day ? ) and i have read loads from this forum and spoken to many people about the pros and cons, a guy where i work lives on one and he loves it, im leaning towards a wide beam one tho purely because i have 3 kids who would come and stay with me twice a week ( yes im a divorced guy ). So when the house is sold i look forward to meeting many like minded souls out and about 🙂
Hi Dempoe and welcome to the forum.
Yes, there’s plenty more space on a widebeam but don’t forget you can’t take iit on the canals with narrow locks. One that you would miss is the South Oxford between Napton and Oxford. It’s a beautiful part of the country.
