    I wish to hire a designer/architect to help me create my vision of a houseboat. A pdf of the SOR and block layout is attached. Northern California location preferred but not required.

    You must be a proponent of elegance+utility within a budget. Weight and stability calculations, CAD drawings, and construction plans in stages. Work to be completed by May 30.

    Please send a private message.

    Mark, could you maybe post these on this thread please, so that we caqn get a better idea as to what you are trying to achieve?

    Some photos of the existing boat, as she is now, would also be useful for reference.

    I just found out that repurposed steel pontoons are impossible to insure. So I am abandoning this approach, and will re-post for a project using new fiberglass pontoons.

    "repurposed steel pontoons are impossible to insure"

    I would expect that a steel boat structure, be it pontoons or even a hull, would need to comply with established standards of engineering, and if adequately inspected and adequately engineered, would be as insurable as any other steel even with a history of being "repurposed". How did you come to the knowledge of your statement?
