How to Work, Live, and Travel on a Houseboat
How to Work & Travel on a Houseboat.
What kind of work or jobs are available while on a houseboat? My wife and I want to buy a houseboat, and travel along the coastline of the United States.
We are wondering how to earn a living, or a good job for people that want to travel all over in their houseboat, and not have one set location. What kinds of jobs or work can they take up?
Also, I really don't know if this is true or not, but do you have to have a drivers license to drive a houseboat?
One more thing, what are some good spots along the United States coastline that are cool to visit.

Well George, many people are presently living, traveling, and working from their houseboats. You will find more details about the types of jobs or work that is possible while houseboating on our houseboat living page, go to the "How to Earn a Living while Aboard
As to your other questions:Driver's License
, True or False, well from my understanding you don't need a drivers license to drive a houseboat, yet depending on your jurisdiction, you may need to take a basic boating course.Cool Places to Visit in the USA
, there's a wide area to cover, yet on the east coast of the US, you can travel up & down the ICW (Inter Coastal Waterway), or do an extended trip and travel the Great Loop.
Hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their experiences for working and earning a living while aboard a houseboat.
