- Your Vessel Info: My dream boat would be a dutch canal boat.....But living in the US, they seem too collectable and rare.
I've started to look at old tugboats in the 40-60ft lengths. Seems like they could be good conversions and less hard to find.
Change my mind.
Boat living seems to have a lot of hidden costs, so I'm trying to figure out if that will be doable.
My dream boat would be a dutch canal boat, but in the states they are rare and pricey
I've been looking at tugboats as an option.
I live in portland and saw a good number available in the Olympic peninsula area.
I need to find a fixer cause I'm on the tightest of budgets, but something that won't need major hull work.

The best I've seen was the "Mighty Mo" WWII tug privately cruising the US East Coast. You could hear it coming from a couple miles away.
You might find something more useful by converting a fishing, utility, navy launch or vessels that are made to accommodate people and economically transit some distance.
