I have rented a 59' houseboat out of Wahweap for early August. We will have 8 people (4 older teens). 4 of us are very experienced boaters both on lakes and ocean with different vessels - sailboats, larger fishing boats, smaller powerboats - although we have never driven a house boat. We have experience docking, beaching and open water anchoring. Reading through many of the posts here it appears that finding a place to beach and anchoring takes a lot of effort and time. We are trying to decide if we should stay put in once place (due to the immense effort of beaching) and take the power boat out to site see or move around the lake and beach each evening (seems impossible due to the time and effort to beach). Would those of you that are experienced with the lake and experienced boaters please let me know if it really would be as is as difficult and challenging as it seems for people that are experienced boaters? Thanks in advance - this forum is awesome and packed with great information!
