An enthusiastic crowd of houseboaters from around Lake Union and Portage Bay gathered April 28th at the Puget Sound Yacht Club for the 49th Annual FHA meeting.
Members began arriving about 615pm to enjoy wine, a varied selection of foods and conversation. There was plenty to talk about. Only a day earlier the community learned the state had passed a bill protecting the houseboat community. Jamie Pederson, District 43 Representative, one of the legislators who was the main sponsor of the bill, dropped in to join in the celebration. And, Howard Droker, the meeting's main speaker arrived early to chat with member and autograph copies of his book, Seattle's Unsinkable Houseboats.
