Welcome aboard…

Back in spring 2018, I found Dorabella, or Dora for short – a 1940’s timber hulled gentleman’s cruiser on Ebay. I fell in love with her and decided to make her my new houseboat. She needed a hell of a lot of renovation, but as they say of movie star icons, hells bells she had good bones.

But of course, moving from a house to a houseboat means a lot of downsizing. Considering exactly what you need. And what you don’t…

So my new Marine based Minimalist life was created. This blog will follow the practical renovation of Dora along with my new transition to tiny house boat living. It will be a mixture of design, diary, tips on minimalism and the occasional rant. Welcome aboard.
