Hi everyone, I have been researching Shanty boats and wish to build one around March 2013.
I am based in the UK and wish to live on it on the narrow canals here.
It will be no more than 6' 10'' beam with a length over all of around 24 foot.
I would like some advice on what best to use for the frames in thickness.
I need to build a design that you walk down into not a sit on top cabin design if that makes sense.
This project for me is a challenge to try and make the Shanty as cheap as possible but of decent strong quality.
I need it to be as easy to build as possible too as I have limited tools and limited carpentry skills although I am willing to learn.
Any info and help would be appreciated and I have had a good read of other threads on here too.
