Have you been busy? Time just flies nowadays, and it seems like just yesterday that Halloween was here. Here at the site, there has been plenty going on. For those of you interested or planning, there's now two major houseboat shows coming. For some great news, Manon & I, have been chosen to be the Seminar Speakers at one of the shows.

Manon and I want to wish all our USA readers a happy Thanksgiving holiday.

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. www.all-about-houseboats.com
