We were sent a great article from Pittsburgh's 6/14/09 Sunday paper about a family's first taste of a Houseboat Vacation aboard a rental houseboat near the Pittsburgh Area. See how it went below (the rest of the article is continued through the link to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's website)
Houseboat cruising creates enjoyable weekend getaway
By Gretchen McKay, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
RAYSTOWN LAKE, Huntingdon County -- It was, to put it mildly, a heart-pounding moment of truth.
We were maybe 150 yards past the last row of boats docked outside Seven Points Marina, heading straight for the open expanses of this spectacularly huge (8,300 acres) and spectacularly deep (200 feet at its northernmost section) man-made body of water. While the kids argued over who'd be first in the deck-top hot tub and I cursed myself for having forgotten to pack blankets, my husband got his last bits of instruction from our friendly deckhand, Mike, on how to pilot the 58-foot houseboat we'd rented for the weekend.
