Year Round Houseboat Living - Live on House Boats?
Any tips for houseboat living for a newcomer? Can you live year round on house boats in winter?
I'm interested in buying a houseboat to live on, however I live in Maryland where the winters get very cold & wet.
Is is possible to keep a houseboat in the water all year round, & how would I maintain it.
This question or a similar question wasn't on your FAQ list.
