Is your boat ready for storage, or hanging decorations for halloween?

For some houseboaters, it's a very colorful Halloween time of year, and for others, it's a sad time of year because it's time to prepare the house boat for storage. It all depends on what part of the hemisphere you're in?

With the end of October upon us, we have two sections that will interest you, one is the popular Houseboat Storage Tips, and the other Houseboat Party Ideas.

Unique Houseboat Blog

We want to wish all our new readers a warm welcome, since this has been another exceptional month for Houseboat Insider subscriptions.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we had putting it together.
Safe Houseboating, Ian & Manon.
