    I have a friend who is from that part of KY. Yep, that’s normal/natural.

    Very sharp guys. The houseboat is not motorized. Instead, it is pushed by a separate Jon boat. Since the houseboat is not motorized, it does not need to be registered. No registration means no property taxes. So, they are actually living on the river for free.

    It is worth noting that the Kentucky River is very beautiful and that the impressionist paiter Paul Sawyier created many beautiful works of art while living in a shanty boat on the Kentucky River near Frankfort.

    Can definitely relate. Everyone should spend a week down south on a house boat. I did in Lake Cumberland and will never forget one of the best vacations of my life.

    Reminiscent of hte house boats hammered together to fish on the Laguna Madre in the 60’s and 70’s.

    they were finally outlawed by the General land Office of Texas, then re allowed for wealthy donors to the Land Commissioner’s campaign fund.

    now there are hundreds of “shacks” costing hundreds of thousands taking the place of the shanties. the cost to the fishing is horrendous.

    Bring back the poor folks and save the fishing!

    Can’t wait to hear the comments on this comment.
