Everything you need to know about houseboats-from how to select and operate one to a description of the waters in the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada-THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO HOUSEBOATING is the first book to guide both the prospective adventurer and the old salt alike through all phases and aspects of natural living, houseboat style.

There are models to suit everyone's personal needs--from a pontoon boat kit for $489 to a large, luxurious, custom- made craft for $67,000. John W. Malo steers you through the selection by providing an overview of houseboat companies and addresses, listing the specifications, standard and optional equipment, power package, and current prices of their models. He also covers:

~How to check a houseboat for behavior, response, comfort, power, instruments, and construction

~Yachtsman, Danforth, Northill, and mushroom type anchors

~Forty-nine pieces of equipment, including alarm systems, deck lines, fume detectors, numbering requirements, depth sounders, and radar

~Outboard, inboard-outboard, and in- board diesel engines

~Inspection and defect notification law for used houseboats

A compendium of houseboating waters in the U.S. and beyond describes marine facilities, interesting sights, connecting waters, the weather, the presence of commercial freight, and the number of shoreline miles; sources are listed for more specific information on gas, waters, facilities, and rules. Other afloat and underway facts include:

~How to measure time, distance, and depth; bottom, land mass, and man-made features

~Sound, bell, gong, whistle, and spar buoys

~Privilege, burden, danger zone signals

~Sections of the Federal Boat Safety Act that relate to the houseboat owner, renter, operator, and passenger

~Approaching and leaving a mooring; slip mooring

Whether your houseboat serves as a weekend retreat, a wedding reception hall, a retirement apartment, or a family home; whether you use it to explore historic waterways, open expanses, big cities, and floating home colonies, or to scuba dive, fish, hunt, and water-ski, THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO HOUSEBOATING is the indispensable reference for pleasant, safe, and economical houseboating--a booming recreational phenomenon and a challenging new lifestyle.
