What is a houseboat, and what are floating homes?
Stationary Floating Homes versus Self-Propelled Houseboats
As you have established yourselves as an informational resource, you should become aware that there is a real, legally-defined and functional difference between a "houseboat" and a "floating home." Reply - Answer
A houseboat is defined as a self-propelled, powered vessel that is capable of maneuvering on its own.
A floating home is permanently moored and has no means of self-propulsion.
Most of what you describe on your website as existing in Sausalito are floating homes and floating home marina, NOT houseboats.
There are very few houseboats in the area, and they are exclusively moored in recreational marinas, not floating home marinas.
I have no idea what you mean by "floating house" as this term has no legal definition.
Also, most of the marinas you listed for Sausalito are recreational, not floating home marinas.
I think it would be a good thing for you to correct your website, and start spreading more accurate information. You are not doing a real service to your readers, otherwise.
Well Stan, I think you're right, the term is "floating home" and not "floating house".
I have used the term unique "floating house communities" on the headline, and sprinkled throughout the Sausalito Houseboat Rentals and unique Floating House communities page.
and therefore could have used the legally defined term "floating homes".
I do appreciate your feedback and comments on the definition and the differences. You're are lucky though, to be living in such a beautiful, and unique floating home communities of the world.Lastly
