Getting to Wolf Island. Wolf is usually the second stop for liveaboards after Punta Carrion and the sail is an evening and overnight sail. I have never dived a better place than Wolf Island - the quantity and variety of marine life was without peer in this world, in my opinion. This has to be the best, if not one of the best, dive sites in the world. Diving Wolf Island in February on the Galapagos Aggressor III.

This charming book sails away from the typical photographic tours found in most houseboat books, focusing instead on the stories of the enchanting people who dwell by the docks. Undoubtedly, Seattle's Lake Union is a stunningly beautiful area. But it is the marvelous mishmash of freshwater folks and the unique community they create that makes living off-land so intriguing.

I enjoyed reading the short individual accounts of the people who live or have lived in the houseboats in the Seattle area. I read this book because I found the houseboat scenes in the movie, "Sleepless in Seattle," to be interesting and I wanted to find out more about that lifestyle. The book seems to have been written for people who are familiar with the area. For those of us who live out of the region, a map of where the houseboat areas are located would have been helpful. There is one sketched map of one dock where the shore covers a section of a street but it also seems drawn for people who are familiar with the area.

I got the sense that this book was really written for the friends and family of the people who are mentioned in the book; it is more like an informal extended-family history than it is an informational text. In reading the individual stories of these families living in the houseboats you do learn a lot about daily living in a houseboat so I did appreciate reading the book.

Although the book has a few sketches there are no photographs. Photographs would have been beneficial to those of us who do not live in Washington state.

What memories reading this book brought back! As a young bride in the 60s I lived with my husband on the end moorage of the Wandesforde dock. We sold that houseboat in 1966 for four thousand, something.

Jeri's done a terrific job of presenting what it's like to live on a houseboat in Seattle. The houseboat owners she's interviewed let you know it's not all fun and frolic with the ducks; there are serious construction issues that anyone thinking about buying (or renting) a houseboat needs to know about. There are quirky maintenance and repair issues you'd never think about if you didn't read this book.

My nostalgia after reading "Staying Afloat" drove me straight to the Internet to check current Seattle houseboat prices. Whew! Better rethink that idea...

Thanks Jeri, for this wonderful slice of a different way of life.

This book focuses on the stories of the people who live aboard floating houses (very few boats) on Lake Union in Seattle. Lots about their history, a little about what it's like to live aboard a boat, but not very useful to someone (like myself) interesting in what it's like to live aboard a boat (a houseboat is more like a little house, complete with rooms and insulation and plumbing and suchlike).

For what it is, it's enjoyable (although more pictures to illustrate the stories would have been nice).

Fun read. Soul deep stories of common folks who share a lifestyle of living in floating houses. Not about living on boats. Not an instruction on living on a boat, nor was it intended to be. Wonderful read. Nice peek into the soul of humanity. Also revealing the greed of the realestate industry and intolerance of any lifestyle out of the ordinary.
