Reason #4
Houseboating creates and enhances the family bond

With today's hectic pace for families, anything that can create a common bond between all the family members is a huge bonus. That's where houseboating can create memories and lifelong bonds amongst family, friends, and your guests. Talk to anyone who has owned a houseboat, and their smile & eyes will start to glow. Can you use a stronger family bond?

Reason #5
Houseboating is affordable compared to other hobbies

When you compare the amount of time (weekends, holidays, vacations, spring break, etc...) you can spend on a houseboat, the cost of it 'per hour of enjoyment' is probably one of the cheapest ways for the family to bond together. There are plenty of starter houseboats for any budget, thus allowing you to get into it for less than you think. What kind of budget do you have for a boat?
