Save up to 40% off:

With so little time and so many things to do, my own personal to-do-list does require me to pick up a few items for the boat. The timing is perfect since you can save some time and I can share this special sale with you. You can take advantage of the up to 40% off sale going on and do some virtual shopping.

One of the things that I realize is that not everyone who receives the monthly Houseboat Insider actually owns a houseboat, so some of you maybe interested in our other topics.
