Yes Karbine,
upon further inspection she definitely looks to be converted to 'houseboat' use with the window boxes, gas bottle and water butt.
Fair play to her residents, what a magnificent piece of Thames history to live aboard. Her hull appears to be in remarkable condition for her age, I'm sure she could have many more years working on the water so should provide a good home for some time to come. Great stuff.

Yea shes a great tug mate. Im guessing shes going to be a house boat soon due to the plants and bored up windows to stop kids smashing them.

Shes been there quite a while though and havent seen anyone on it :-?

Nice to see her still in one piece and back under her original name Karbine. Saw her lots in her Humphery & Grey days.
Not too sure about the window boxes though 8-)
