LETTER: Did you live on a houseboat?

I would like to make contact with anyone who lived on, or took an interest in, the houseboats that used to be in Newhaven from the 1950s to the 1970s. I am especially interested in those that were ex-military boats, but other boats over 45ft are of interest also. I would like to find out names of these boats and if possible obtain pictures of them.

If you can help please contact me by email (p.simons102@btinternet.com).
