I'm looking to buy a used houseboat and am looking for some in-depth information on the various hull materials. For my steel hull I have been lifting up the floor boards in the bilge, and wire brushing any rust I see then painting the interior with corroseal.


Steel Trawler: NOW AVAILABLE WITHOUT STRAITS NIGHTS - IDEAL ENTRY LEVEL VESSEL WITH PROVEN CATCH RECORD. What are the "drawbacks or downsides" to buying a steel hulled used houseboat verses aluminum or fiberglass?
I see that there are big price variations depending on the hull construction material.Any help would be greatly appreciated, Larry.
The only comment I can make about fiberglass is it has wood support members and they will rot.The key to the metal hulls is firstly make sure the hull is sound and without deep electrolysis pitting. As you probably have seen, prices of used houseboats can vary greatly depending on the construction material.If you were to look at the current market, you will see that aluminum construction is becoming the norm for houseboat materials. Secondly, with this passing the test, have the hull bead or corncob blasted to bright metal and only top shelf bottom paints applied.


A steel houseboat would not really be on my radar unless I had the time, money, an acceptable marine survey, an insurance policy, and lastly a marina willing to accept the boat.Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about the various houseboat material experiences and tips.
Go ahead click the book and sign-up, it's free and filled with great articles, tips, information and website updates. Thirdly, if you chose a metal hull, (my preference) after you have cleaned and painted the bottom, make sure to use ample zinc blocks to ward off the evil spirits of stray electrical currents in the water.
