I am Linda, wife of Ian, the creator of this website . I have some sad news to share with you…..after battling lung cancer for the last year and putting up a valiant fight, Ian passed away in March of this year.

Ian loved this newsletter, website and was passionate about being a house boater and I know he loved sharing his passion with you all.

It was his desire that this website continue on and remain active and viable.

Although I can never match Ian’s vast knowledge, I have surrounded myself with a team of house boaters and other experts so that we can continue to honor Ian’s wishes to share his passion for houseboats with this community.

Thank you for your support and understanding and we look forward to continuing Ian’s legacy on
