Making the Right Choice

Trading in the bike for a boat

One beautiful spring day we put on our leathers and headed out on the motorcycle. It was a scenic ride from our home in Cabot, to Freeport, Pa., a small town on the Allegheny River about 30 minutes away. I guess you could say we were headed "over the river and through the woods."

The light bulb went on-it was fate. We thought it couldn't hurt to ask and before we knew it, we had traded our Suzuki for a houseboat!...That was two years ago and we are having way too much fun to miss the bike. 



Read all about this off the cuff decision to go the "houseboating way" in the May/June issue of Houseboat Magazine. You can find the story on page 24.
