Name the Houseboat
Always wanted to build a cabin johnboat as detailed in Zack Taylors Book so I can just stay in the marsh for a few days. To that end I picked up a 24' Seark and got a great deal on a 60 hp Yamaha four stroke.
The cabin and rear deck is framed and cabin roof is in progress. I can't think of a name for this ugly ducking - BTW Gullywhupper is not an options.


How about some suggestions ?? Thanks

I don't have a name suggestion, but I sure like her. I've always had the same thoughts about building one. I have my ZT Widgeon, and always thought it would be so neat to stay on the houseboat, then hunt out of the little boat, perhaps returning for lunch, snacks, bathroom breaks, a nap, and certainly for the night.

Good stuff!

Friend of mine uses a 24' Seaark w/factory cabin as transport to and from his island on Chincoteague Bay. Beware when you start using boat that the high profile w/little draft will act as a sale in wind. Makes for some interesting docking at times!
