We are Wade and Susan and the plan is to make this boat our Maine Cottage Style home. She was built in 1983 by Carl Gibson. He was somehow connected to the Gibson Houseboat company. If you now the history we would love to be enlightened.
We found it on eBay back in 2006 on Lake Winnapausukie. I figured I could do the restoration in about 4 years. Ha Ha. Funny how in the course of trying to have a life, make a living, stay healthy and rebuild a boat our plans had to evolve and adapt.
We like living in cozy spaces. We built our home 30+ years ago and the original structure was 20′ x 24′ with one bedroom and bath. It grew over the years and as much as we love it the time has come to simplify again.
We will get this boat in the water and we will live on it. That’s still the plan.
