It's holiday time, and we want to wish you all a happy New Year. We hope that 2012 brings you many safe and happy houseboating memories.

As some of you know, the RV Road Trip all about Houseboats has given me a new perspective about houseboats and RV's. Both of these recreational activities are very similar, and both have some of the nicest people you could ever meet.

Summary of the New Items on the Site:

Houseboat Rentals - you can now book early for great deals on houseboat rentals, and even rare canal boats.

New Houseboats For Sale - there's excellent pricing on luxury aluminum houseboats, and pontoon houseboats, and fiberglass Gibson houseboats.

Floating Homes & Stationary Boats - there's a new trend for low cost floating cottage style house-boats.

Bow & Stern Thrusters - there's now large heavy duty bow/stern thrusters, and even smaller DIY thrusters.

Canvas Biminis & Party Tops - save money by remodeling your current boat with new canvas and upgrades.

Houseboat Transport - there's now free transport quotes for local, or cross-country moves with quality boat movers.

Fiberglass Parts & Accessories - factory direct pricing and nation-wide shipping on flybridges, party tops, upper helms, and custom parts.

Aluminum Jet Ski Rails, PWC Lifts & Custom Parts - there's now also factory direct pricing on PWC Lifts, Jet Ski Rails, and aluminum custom parts.

As you can see there's lots of new additions to the site this year, and there's plenty in the works for 2012. You can stay up-to-date with the blog as it's still constantly being updated while we are traveling through houseboat country.

Again, Happy New Year and see you in 2012, IAN.
