It's a 37' well-equipped houseboat, perfect for the free - spirited. First owners, a retired couple, both were school teachers who set out to travel the small towns and estuaries stretching throughout the Bay Area. Next to be a music studio and school under the following owner, then becoming a creative, peaceful and ultimately rewarding script writing studio for another occupant.
