    I bought this boat about a year ago, its a freeman 26, I bought it because its cheap to keep on the canal system because of its size, 26 feet long. The freeman boats are known for there high quality fibreglass construction its an early 1970’s boat but the body is still in excellent condition. It was built as a weekend boat so I’ve had to remodel it so I can live on it , at the pointy end I’ve built a new bed which is quite high and hinges up to give lots of storage underneath, I was thinking of putting an extra water tank under there as well to supplement the tank in the back of the boat. The bed has new mattress foam on it and a foam topper from Ikea so its quite comfy also there are storage shelves around the bed and a colour tv that can swivel out into the lounge.
    The lounge has a woodburner, I use coal on it as wood is too expensive, at night I use smokeless fuel and it stays alight all night, the floor has been recovered In exterior ply planks and varnished, the seat has storage underneath and a stainless hotwater tank which isn’t connected at the moment, you could use it for hotwater or take it out for extra storage.
    On the right hand side is a good size wardrobe with storage underneath I keep my wine there as its nice and cool, the cooker has 2 burners a grill and an oven and works very well, the oven cooks very fast, next to the oven is a new fridge I bought last summer from argos and after that some shelves and the fuse box for the 220volt
    There are some drawers at the front of the bed and a step to climb into bed, there is a blind that comes down to make the bed private and it keeps the bedroom cooler if you have the fire on, there are pull down blinds on the windows which keep the boat warm and cool in the summer, the windows slide open and are high quality chrome finish I’ve fitted storage shelves above the windows and seat which are handy for your odds and ends.
    In the kitchen there’s a base unit and some upper storage boxes I’ve built the sink over the engine to save space and also you can look out the window while washing the dishes, the drain unscrews at the back and the whole unit swivels to the right to give access to the engine.
    The engine is the original pre crossflow marinised ford 1500, it starts very well and runs smoothly, I fitted new plugs, points and leads last year, the gearbox is good and there are manuals for the engine and gearbox, I’ve changed the engine to negative earth.
    I built an outdoor lockable storage box on
