Building your Own Houseboat - Permits, Laws, & Regulations?
Building a Houseboat in Florida, any Laws or Permits?
I am thinking of building a houseboat, 10 miles up river from Apalachicola, Florida.
It would be a small houseboat, simply 25 feet long, by 10 feet wide, with no motor.
What are the laws or regulations, and do I need any permits? Reply - Answer
Well, that's a good question since the regulations and requirements can vary between different states.
I would suggest to check with your local boating authorities to see what the current requirements and regulations are regarding getting a stationary, none motorized, "homemade or homebuilt houseboat" approved. Lastly
, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their houseboat permits and regulation experiences.
Thanks for sharing, IAN from all-about-houseboats
