Your Vessel Info: 1974 42' traditional junk-rigged scow. Built by a local shipwright to be his home. He lived aboard for 30 years. Now I am restoring the boat while living aboard with my spouse and dog.

Hello from Cape Cod

Hi all,

I'm a marine engineer who lives on a big, old, and strange boat with my partner, a scientist, and our dog. We have worked on boats and ships of various sizes but this is our first time owning our own boat. And boy is it a fixer-upper.

Our boat has a very long story but the short version is that I am livingaboard and attempting the restoration of a wooden 1974 42' junk-rigged scow built with tradition techniques to be a liveaboard by a local shipwright.

I have just found this forum and am excited to write with fellow liveaboard. Most online boating resources just aren't written with the liveaboard in mind.

For the Oceans,
StrangeJunk
