I promise. Least said, soonest mended.

Re: RV of the Waterway

Rented one a few weeks ago on the upper Mississippi. Lots of space, fairly easy to handle, good for protected flat waters. Locking thru on the river is no problem. Bigger ones have thrusters. For about the same $$$ I own a ranger tug.

Where are you sleeping tonight?

Going to another discussion, a condomaron could be purchased for that.

I think you can see that type thing on some of our larger inland lakes.

Re: RV of the Waterway

OK, I hate to be a wet blanket but ew. Whatever happened to the beauty of boats? We don't like women who look like a phone booth. Is that just me?
Would you/could you possibly feel the warm pride of ownership as you're pulling for the dock with that floating condo filling your vision? I'd have to wear a hoody.

Not going to cross any oceans on that one, but to each his own.

Re: RV of the Waterway

It does have side decks, but they are very narrow. They are about the same width as on my Albin 25. I wouldn't use them unless it's calm and the boat isn't moving. I assume the houseboat has handholds if you are on the side deck. Since the house boat has a forward cockpit anchoring would be easy.
I think most of these go into rental fleets, so when docking, there probably will be marina staff to help. Otherwise, it probably doesn't move much absent a hurricane, so you could likely tie one end and then walk on the dock to tie the other. Chances are you wouldn't be soloing on this beast either, so someone could toss a line if the boat drifted off the dock.
If you had a boat leery spouse, you might lure them onto the water by renting one of these at some spectacular lake.
