Contest: Win a Week on a Houseboat


Have you ever thought about buying a houseboat? Maybe even living on one? They look cool… if you're into that sort of thing. And they certainly maximize living space more than most other types of boats. If you plan to boat on a lake or river (since you need relatively calm water for most houseboats), and plan to do a lot of entertaining on the water (since they are usually so spacious), a houseboat may be right for you.

A great way to find out if any style of boat is really right for you before you go out and buy one is to spend some time on one. (Click for more about buying a boat .) Here's your chance to do just that with a luxury houseboat. Just yesterday, Soundings TradeOnlyToday reported on a contest from houseboats.com where you can win a week on a totally pimped out houseboat, complete with fuel, on Shasta Lake in California.

The prize, which houseboats.com values at $16,000, includes seven nights on the lavish triple deck Titan – "a magnificent vessel that offers the finest in comfort and entertainment. The Titan's home theater system, tracking satellite, open-air hot-tub, spiral-tube waterslide and countless other contemporary features are sure to make the winner's vacation experience unforgettable."

Requirements for entering the contest, which ends May 1st, include writing a 300 word essay, so you better hurry if you want a chance to win. Enter here.

Good luck!
