Happy New Year, and the best of wishes to you and your family. Now that the holidays are past and that 2010 is upon us, it is time to start to gear up for a new houseboating season.
We have been busy doing lots of back-end website tasks and upgrades, getting ready for some of the projects planned for 2010.
As a bonus for our readers that have joined us in 2009 and earlier, you can now head over and download the new 2010 Houseboat Calendar here.
When it comes to houseboating, one of the most popular questions being asked is concerning insurance. Here are some links to help our readers where to find economical houseboat insurance, and here's some basic steps and information on what to ask your insurance company.
We hope you enjoy this edition as much as we had putting it together.
If you're new to the Insider, we welcome you, and do enjoy your stay.
Safe Houseboating, Ian & Manon www.all-about-houseboats.com
