Chugger: The Spirit of Shantyboats

Chugger…

Budget Boating:Houseboats/Shantyboats/Minimalist Cruising

As you all know, I love the off-beat and unusual, therefore I really love the Chugger, a Steve Lewis minimalist cruiser. Twelve feet long with a four foot beam, Steve has gotten a lot out of a little.

image005Duckworks, http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/index.cfm has several articles about this cool little boat with lots of great photos. Of course you can go directly to Steve’s own site, http://www.angelfire.com/ego/lewisboatworks/html/main_a.htm and see all the boats he’s designed.

Inspired by Steve’s design, Manie Botha from Pretoria South Africa modified the design and came up with this:

You can find Manie’s story at: http://www.duckworksmagazine.com/08/splash/5-23/index.htm

But my all time favorite of this boat I found on the Duckworks story of the Lake Pepin Messabout and presented by John Goeser whose „Think Pink“ shows an unpretentious man with a great sense of humor.
