HB Insider - how long could you last?
May 28, 2017

The weather is getting really nice, not too cold, not TOO HOT, just right. It's the perfect weather so that you can do work around the boat in shorts and a t-shirt. The nights are still cool enough that you don't need any air conditioning, so we sleep like babies... :)

But you never know what tomorrow will bring...

On a personal note, unfortunately our marina suffered a major power failure that lasted 7 days, so we went a week without electrical power.

Statistics show that not all the Houseboat Insider subscribers actually own a houseboat. Many of our new readers may be looking to buy a houseboat, and others may be searching the classified ads, or may be looking to buy a new boat, or may be wanting to transport a boat, or looking to finance a boat, or looking for a great vacation rental deal?

Here's some other links to tips on buying a boat, transporting a boat, building a houseboat, insurance for houseboats, marine surveys, classified ads, and houseboat rentals. We hope you find the links useful, and do enjoy the website, IAN.
