Yeah, nothing about the RaySea Lady looks like a houseboat to me.

I think you should have said Coastal Cruiser instead of Bluewater. Or perhaps Bluewater Coastal Cruiser or XX-foot Coastal Cruiser. Having cruised constantly for months at a time, I soon learned what words to avoid, not just for prestige but for clarity on the phone and in radio transmissions. You have a great boat there. Enjoy.

I recently called a marina for a slip reservation, he asked what type of boat I had and as soon as I told him I had a Bluewater he immediately came back with "Oh, it's a houseboat".

If I do a search on houseboats or the Louisville Houseboat show, they are basically a river craft, square design and on pontoons. I am not trying to downgrade houseboats in any way, they have their purpose, but, I would like to know where this thinking comes from.

This type of thing has happened several times this summer.

Does anyone know why people would think of a Bluewater as a houseboat??
