Hiya currently in carlisle and was meant to be buying a boat in norwich this week and moving down to live on board for a time while i get myself back on my feet financially. This fell through so now im stuck
tenancy on my house ends on friday and searching ebay hasnt been fruitful
surely someone has a smallish boat project for sale that floats somewhere in the broads?
if so please email me urgently as im in a tight spot thanks

Hi and welcome to the NBF. I would think for a budget of £750 you will struggle to find something big enough to live on without it needing a lot of work.

I'm sure someone must have something somewhere, good luck with your search.

Doug.

Got to say that I think that you are living on cloud-cuckoo-land! You probably can get a boat, of sorts, for £750.00 but it doesn't end there. Biggest problem is getting a mooring, especially a residential one. To say that such moorings are at a premium in Norwich is something of an understatement. You will need a Boat Safety Certificate, insurance and a toll, probably not much change out of four hundred pounds, and then you either need to keep on the move, or have a mooring, if you are lucky enough to find one.  If I were you I would head for a coastal harbour like Lowestoft, the Broads is not residential, budget boater friendly, regretfully.

Had a look on Gumtree too:
http://www.gumtree.com/p/for-sale/14ft-shetland-boat-shell/1072201556
but by the time you've paid for the tolls etc you will
probably be over budget and without a mooring. As soon as you
put a cooker and electrics onboard you will probably
need a boat safety certificate, and then your problems
really start!!
