Why would someone want a cabin in the woods when they can have a houseboat? That's the question Andy Anderson, houseboat owner and water lover, asks. "It's like a cabin on the water, but it makes so much more sense," he explained. "There's no lawn to mow and there's less to maintain.


You just climb on, start the engine and wave to everyone." Anderson and his wife, Kathy, residents of Duluth, built their houseboat some 30 years ago and have enjoyed it every summer since.
