Hey everybody!

New guy here, just getting my feet wet with the research on buying my first houseboat. The ultimate goal is to do the loop but I have a few years to build up to it.

I really like the holiday mansion 38' and up and have seen quite a few with the expanded freeboard. I would think that could come in handy on some of the open water sections.

Does anyone have any experience with the holiday mansions and extra tall freeboard in the gulf or up the ice?

I am located on lake erie so i'll have plenty of practice in the great lakes and the erie canal....
