“The biggest thing you have to get used to is that the boat constantly moves,” says Darryl Madden, a cybersecurity consultant and houseboat owner. Other than that, the houseboat life is the good life. Much cheaper than paying rent anywhere in the city, a group of houseboat owners save money and space at the Gangplank Marina in Washington D.C.—the largest liveaboard houseboat community on the East Coat. In this Atlantic original documentary, we delve into the houseboat lifestyle to discover the pros and cons of living on the water.
