My Houseboat Marina - Taylor Creek, Lake Okeechobee, Florida
Our favorite houseboat marina is Taylor Creek, 1/2 mile from Lock S-193, Lake Okeechobee, Florida USA. In reality my favorite marina is my own dock at my home.
I have 250 ft of waterfront, a 22 ft pontoon, a 34 ft Nautaline houseboat with tail board and twin 115 hp Yamaha 4 strokes. Somehow the tape measure shows 40 ft from bow to back side of engine cowl. All I need to make it complete is pump out station which I am working on.
We have taken our houseboat all the way down to the fiberglass, and we renewed everything. We will be heading for a shake-down voyage the end of September for a 3 night trip to the Atlantic ICW. Upon return we will correct the flaws and finish off the interior.
Photos to come later as laptop does not contain them. We have redesigned the interior to function for us, Joyce and I. The mid deck is inside helm and u-shaped kitchen with only under counter cabinets to keep all the windows clear. We like to cruise and eat, and we like being together on our vessel.
Yes it is a vessel, as it will soon be listed as a Coast Guard Aux facility on call to the Coast Guard. My wife and I are both in the Coast Guard.

Well Daniel and Joyce, it sounds like you are both very well setup there, and I see that your favorite marina has all your "toys".
I hope your trip down the ICW goes well, and that you have nothing but a safe voyage.Lastly
