Harmonica Variation Canal Boat

Shanty Boat Living has a little 'house' boat. I wonder if it is made using fiberglass, would it be light weight enough for a Smart to tow?


I think it is a neat little house boat.

The linked article says 1100 lbs/500kg (W/ trailer).

That is right at what I consider max tow capacity for a smart?
So, you COULD tow it with a smart. BUT, you couldn't add much else to it?

Anyone care to agree/disagree?

Could one make something similar with fiberglass and make it a little smaller so that the weight could be reduced to the point where it would not be difficult to tow it and what is on it with a Smart? Probably would never try but it seems like a neat exercise in how it could be done.
