    My favorite: Chester Thordarson's, Rock Island, Wisconsin (now a state park):

    The interior, filled with fine wooden furniture hand-carved with scenes from Norse mythology:

    Venice: With one of my wooden boats (Auray punt) at the Arsenale (Darsena Grande = Great docks). Thousands of wooden boats have been built here during the long history of Venice.

    Very tidy,but storing boats like that could easily lead to sagging/hogging over time.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    I like the working class boathouses on the Lower Columbia River here in Oregon.



    That's an old wooden bowpicker on the right- a regional type of fishing boat that uses gill nets.

    I visited England a few years ago and saw some regal boathouses, but one "house" that I loved were these canal houses in the Netherlands:


    I'm guessing they were just for pleasure, but if anyone knows more, I'd love to understand the story.

    I nearly bought one on Hickling, back in '85. Nice boat room below and a comfy living space above. Bit of land and £6K for the lot... Ok, not as pretty as those, but still desirable. Thatch is pretty, but lots of buts.

    Lovely photo.

    These small houses were built in the 17th century by wealthy Dutchman.
    They are named "theekoepels" (tea domes) and were used for drinking tea and socializing, these buildings raised the social status of the owners
