Providing a lovely narrow boat accommodation for people who are in employment, but are struggling to pay rent due to high cost of living, giving them first hand experience of a live aboard boat so that they can equip themselves with the experience that may lead them to opt for this alternative but affordable accommodation option. And allowing them to save money as its rent free.

What we'll deliver:

  • Boat Maintanance
  • Permenant mooring for boat
  • Roll out project on larger scale

Why it's a great idea:

There is a huge lack of affordable accommodation for hard working low income people and it's scandalous.. Though I believe that the canal ways and narrow boat owners who from my experience are generally very giving people, make this a useful tool in the battle against the lack of affordable accommodation. It's unbelievably an untapped resource, my thinking is that with the 'Wild Honey Boat Project' is that with the necessary support and promoting my concept could be rolled out and other boat owners would follow suit, a lot of who do not live on board for long periods of time.

Steps to get it done:

This is a great concept and I can't believe it has not been used by local government
