I believe that's some kind of boat. I was going to say sailboat, but I don't see a mast in the middle.

It was a rhetorical question. He says he lives in a boat in the caption below the video on Youtube.

Ya gotta watch more Brit TV. Canal boats play heavily into murder mysteries,etc. You'd think a significant portion of the population lived there.

The direct link didn't show that. Silly me, I thought you were serious.

It's quite common in London as it's cheaper than land based property and there are moorings on canals. I've been to house parties on them.

Unfortunately many of the moorings on the Thames have been bought up by property companies which have raised the rental costs beyond the ability of the boat owners to afford.

You've got to watch the tide, on the Thames too. I know one guy, living on a boat, who parked his car by the boat (ignoring the warning signs) and when the tide came in, the boat rose up but his car did not.
