Shame to see the quirky houseboat on the Ouse through the tunnel has sunk but I guess it was only a matter of time.

Thanks for the photos, if there are more please post. It would be interesting to the last photo before this happened...and the police would be interested to see too. In the first picture taken from the other side of the bank, what is that huge metal looking thing wedged into the railings of the boat...or is that just the jetty/pontoon?
Amazing that people are saving the boat. There is hope in the world... The police and council are saying they will secure the boat to stop it drifting.

These are the ones I've got that started in interest it's the fact that normally everyday myself or my son's girlfriend walk past it to go to work in the evenings she sent me these as we talk about the boat nearly everyday saying how amazing it is and such an unsusal boat to build so much craftsmanship to have the patience to do it
