    No I understand that the Lake of the ozarks is not like the ocean I was just kidding. Osage beach is very familiar territory to me, that is right around where I run around down there.

    I want to thank you again for all the info and stories they make me feel more welcome and confident that with the proper equipment/planning I could make this trip.

    I have been thinking a 48 ft Gibson Sport would work as it will take rough water and the windows will not blow out. We are going to have a kit for the hatchs to stop water from going in it heavy Seas. you would have room and a great handling boat.

    We don't see too many houseboats here but the waters do seem to be fairly houseboat friendly. You're never too far from a hidey-hole and there's always the ICW for getting around. Marinas however can be another story, as liveaboards seem to be unwelcome at many.
    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for!
