New Beam on the Block

Our fellow boaters across the way have taken possession of their new home today, and we, along with several other people moored in our basin, were there to welcome them in and take a rope or two.

It is a HUGE vessel, some 62 feet by 12 feet, which is 144 extra feet of living space compared to their existing boat measuring 60 feet by 10 feet which is up for sale.

She is tied on the left, and you can see the other pontoon finger on the right.

For comparison, this is us, also tied on the left.

It is a beauty (but too big for me).


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Looks impressive, although I cannot imagine handing it with a few delinquent fellow boaters in the area!

    looks like it would be nice and comfy. Only 2 ft bigger all around, not so much more to handle.

  3. I can hardly deal with my parents’ pontoon boat, and that is itty-bitty compared to these. I can’t imagine attempting to boat on one of these!

    Those vessels have a lot of character.
