'How Seattle houseboats have managed to stay afloat'

JAN 17, 2019 at 12:04 AM

A half century ago Seattle had more than 2,000 houseboats. Today only about 500 remain. Over the decades the houseboat community has struggled to stay afloat as a result of policy changes, higher moorage fees and evictions. Local historian Knute "The Mossback" Berger says, "There's been a long tradition of accepting houseboats and then periodically deciding, well, this is a bad idea." On this episode of SoundQs we explore the history of houseboats and look at what makes this community so unique.

All the best
