Are Carri-Craft houseboats good for coastal navigation, island hopping?
by Marc Rhodes
A catamaran Carri-Craft houseboat is a unique design.
Wondering if Carri-Craft houseboats are good for coastal navigation and short island hopping?
I am interested in buying a used Carri-Craft houseboat of approx 60 ft. My use is on the Mississippi River, coastal navigation and some travel in the Carribbean.
Is this houseboat suitable for inshore boating and limited island hopping?
Thanks, Marc Rhodes Reply - Answer
Well Marc, congratulations on your decision to buy a 60 ft catamaran Cari-Craft houseboat. I myself find these to be beautifully designed houseboats for cruising and traveling.
In reponse to your question, my short answer is yes, yet don't underestimate the dangers and responsibilities of coastal navigation or island hopping.
If you use our search function, you will find my articles on ICW, Great Loop, or coastal travel. There's a lot of great articles of interest for you.Lastly
