Converted Landing Craft Houseboat

The site says:   This is a recording of Ken Turner’s memories of his parent’s houseboat “Smugglers” on Benfleet Creek. In it he refers to the buying of the landing craft; the construction of the houseboat; Canvey flood of 1953; his relative’s houseboats; and the happy memories he has of the houseboat.  Listen to the recollections here.
