Shoreham-by-Sea is world famous for its extraordinary houseboats. There are old wooden torpedo boats, pot plant gardens tended by nice old ladies, ferries, barges and a great big German minesweeper.
Judy, who lives on a little barge describes houseboat living as "tremendously romantic", but says that "you'll find you'll need to do a lot of work, though work can be romantic too."
Mike, who is an engineer by training, has rebuilt the superstructure of a world war two torpedo boat, though he claims that anyone who's a bit practical could learn. While rebuilding the hull he found an original bullet hole.
