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

~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:
