Houseboating on Lake Lewisville, Texas USA

I spend most of our time houseboating on Lake Lewisville in Texas and I do boating safety assignments with the US Coast Guard Auxiliary.

At one time, Lake Lewisville was the most dangerous lakes in Texas. Thankfully, another lake now has that dubious honor.

Houseboaters can join us in the Auxiliary. Your houseboat can be an authorized patrol facility. Join us.

Well Johnnie, I am glad to hear that Lake Lewisville no longer holds the title of the most dangerous lake is Texas.

It's also a pleasure to hear that there's a place for houseboats amongst the US Coast Guard Auxiliary as an authorized patrol facility.

As I am also certified with the Auxiliary for SAR missions, it is good to see that other areas are also improving and promoting safe boating.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their Lake Lewisville houseboat experiences and tips.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN from all-about-houseboats

Houseboat living legal?
by: Anonymous

Everything I've found suggests living aboard a house boat in Texas lakes is not exactly legal. I hear there are exceptions, and work-arounds, but I have also struggled to get a clear answer. Would love to know and understand. We too have considered our next home option to be a houseboat...but just don't have all the facts.

Living on a houseboat in Texas?
by: tom

We have been enjoying our 42ft Gibson houseboat for seven years now. Being retired we have considered living on the boat year round but can't seem to get an answer about the legal aspects. Does anyone know if it's ok to live on a houseboat in Texas?
