The admiral and I have discussed getting a houseboat in a few years and giving it a try. We do spend close to 50 weekends a year (Friday thru Sunday) plus long weekends around the holidays on our boat. Snow, high winds, rain or heat doesn't keep us away.

"Snow, high winds, rain or heat doesn't keep us away." sounds like you work for the post office.... LOL just kidding but WOW 50 weekends a year... The reason I was asking is I was thinking about taking a job in Pensacola, FL and doing the same. Not to sure. But living on a boat with the small living space, but you are in the wide open spaces.

We have quit a few friends with house boats. One couple lives on their 72' x 16' custom 2 bedroom. Full size kitchen appliances including washer and dryer, king size bed (not a boat matress), residential heat pump...They even carry a 14' pontoon with a 50 HP on the back. It is truly like a home. We are just not ready to give up the cruiser style boat. We laugh and say we aren't old enough yet for a houseboat yet the truth is we are older than most we know.
