ancora,
The only downside to that IMO is it may be noisy moored next to a lived in cottage. What if the guy liked football at high volume?
But if they were nice people it would be a security plus.

Wait. The crazy dude with the sinking WinnaBayGo is named "Peter Phan"? Seriously?
Please tell me the boat's name is "Never Land."

Running the loop , one gets into many lakes where this style of houseboat/party barge / kid playground is fairly common.

The locals seem to love them as they do just what is desired to have fun with.

If I find myself moving to a lakefront home, you can bet I'm getting a party barge!

"If I find myself moving to a lakefront home, you can bet I'm getting a party barge!"

lake front can cost 2x or 3x the price of a home a block back from the water..

The money saved can pay for decades of slip space for the party barge.

Heck just the difference in property tax might do it.

FF, I hear 'ya, brother. But I'm spoiled. This is the view from my upper deck, almost the same from my home office. That's the Chesapeake Bay on the left, with Stoney Creek feeding into it from the right.

That's going to be hard to give up. That, and the $ and now I have a grandson ... all these things are conspiring to put me in a constant state of indecision.

First world problems, for sure!

Hmmm....
