Nominate Your Dock Mate for Houseboat Magazine's 2008 Houseboater of the Year


Know someone deserving of the coveted "Houseboater of the Year" title? Maybe you're thinking of that dock buddy-you know-the one that always has the right tool in a pinch and is always the first to offer a hand. Or, is it that lovely couple a few slips down who go out of their way to make sure everyone is invited to the dock parties? The Houseboater of the Year embodies the spirit of what we do, serves as an advocate for the community and knows how to have a little fun along the way.

Send your nomination in-they can't win if you don't nominate them.
