Why I’m selling my houseboat


Hey, I’m in Sweden I was in Norway to speak at a conference And I just swung by here to clean up my houseboat because you know what I’m selling it. Don’t be sad I’m sad for the both of us for the boat of us About a year ago I posted it like a tour of my boat and a lot of people were disappointed that I didn’t show any exterior shots nor gave the name of the boat You know that the Internet can be a really creepy place So there were good reasons for not wanting to do that, but now since I’m selling it You’re just gonna be creepy to whatever person happens to buy it so time to tell all my secrets Yeah, we’re almost there, are you ready? Dun dun duuun Here it! His name is Alfred I’m on my boaat Cause is still my boat So yeah his name is Alfred, and yes, he has a man’s name Please respect his chosen pronoun, but he’s an ice-breaking tugboat which means that he’s technically allowed to have a man’s name because Breaking things and dragging them behind you is such a male thing to do What the fuck do I know I bought Alfred on my 22nd birthday because I couldn’t afford to buy an apartment and a crew of builders and I, like remodeled pretty much the entire boat We changed the steering system, the heating system, the sewage system, Remodeled the whole kitchen, built a new staircase Did a bunch of stuff I was really broke at the time, so it was at a minimal budget But he turned out pretty ok This scar I have here in my hand is from fiddling these cupboards here, so I’ve shed blood on this boat, we’re blood siblings now Truth to be told it’s mostly period blood but still counts. Alfred is like this grumpy old man. He was born I say born not built because I think of him as a person. Oh, yeah. He was built in 1942 and he actually sunk in the fifties so the sewage leak I had is definitely not the worst thing that’s happened to him. Lot of people ask if I’d recommend buying a house boat If you’re ready to put in the work that it requires and sure go ahead I should probably not tell you any of these things because I’m trying to sell this boat But during the first summer I had three break-ins. So three times, I woke up in the middle of the night because there were people walking on the boat and two of the times It was just like drunk people and it was fine I just like shooed in the way But once there was actually a guy who Tried to break in and I was on lower deck and I could see he was walking past Holding a knife and the way I reacted was I gave this like guttural like cavewoman scream You know like when you you get power from the tail you no longer have I just Screamed and was like GET OFF OF MY BOAT BITCH and for some reason I did it in English as well I was Sweden in I don’t know my brain was like when you’re in an emergency situation Fall back on all the action movies you’ve seen and speak English my boyfriend at the time Just started laughing so hard and I actually got really upset because I was like what the fuck were you doing at least I screamed get off of My boat bitch. After that I redesigned the bridge so you can kind of hoist it up And since then we’ve hardly had any issues Things are fine, please buy my boat, please buy my boat, please buy my boat. Please buy my boat It’s the bed Please buy my boat, please buy my boat. I’m just kidding don’t buy it I mean do buy it, but don’t buy it here’s the tugboat hook This right here. It’s like hidden behind this bench, but Still there still works the engine totally works. It’s fine. He’s fine. Everything is fine It’s gonna be great. So things are gonna be great The main reason I’m selling Alfred is because I live in the States now I need to be there for work and Alfred really needs somebody to be here to take care of him So I know that a lot of you have asked about the boat and what’s happening with it? And I just wanted to let you know that I’m abdicating as a houseboat captain I can no longer have that on my list of things that make me cool. Which is fine I feel like I can’t fill it up with other stuff. I always look ridiculous in this captain’s hat anyway, so At least I won’t have that anymore, but it does feel sad. Bye Alfred. I think this might be one of the last times I’m here Bye sewage tank You know sometimes when you love somebody you have to let them go Or as my mom says, If you love a man sometimes you need to find him a new owner Yeah, she does say that She said it just this morning, thanks for watching. Please don’t forget to subscribe or to buy my boat Okay, bye

  24. MCFish Nuggets says:

  25. Vincent Pietrek says:

    Obviously your kind of broke is different from others kind of broke.
    Of course the definition can vary but in none have I heard that ppl brought a boat.
    Most of us can't afford cars nor the license.

  26. No Name says:

    Now that is the ugliest boa……Wait….I don't even own a boat! So how the Hell do I have any right to say anything about anyone else's freaking boat!

  75. John in Okla says:

    To start with Alfred isn't a houseboat, he is a tug boat. A non-working, as in not working as a tug boat, but still a tug boat. But then you took a car and made a truck out of it so what do I know. 😁

  76. Pato Swag says:

    Why don’t you just move it to the states

  77. cj West says:

    You are one very funny girl…

  78. Hexapoda says:

    If I had been rich I had been running down there, throw the money on you just to get Alfred, I do not live in Stockholm but I have passed there several times when I'm been walking towards Lasse i Parken, but I never did pay much attentions to the boats.

  79. Nathaniel Barton says:

  83. TehAxelius says:

    Oh man, I grew up on a boat maybe 100m from there :O

  84. Ben Pearce says:

    Somehow, YouTube has suggested this girls videos twice now and I was like WTF, why would I be interested in this. So I watched where she did the ignorant car to wanna be station wagon/truck thing and now she's talking about a boat named Alfred. Are you kidding me? The only thing I'm figuring out from the two videos I've seen is simply this, I'm now starting to understand why America is in the condition that it is and why her generation is called generation Tide Pods.
    Dear YouTube, do you let just anybody put the most ignorant stuff on your site? That's a rhetorical question, obviously you do, I've seen both of her videos… Please stop posting videos, please stop making videos… Please, for intelligent people's sake, stop posting absolutely stupid videos

  85. Daniel says:

    I used to live on a boat in Sweden, sailed it down there from Norway. Much smaller than this boat though. Was actually planning to bring it trough the canals down to the French riviera, but sort of got stuck in Sweden. Anyway, had to sell it, was really sad, I wish I hadn't sold it now.

  86. greg rafieck says:
