Tuesday night, the Cohasset City Council approved the planning commission’s recommendation to limit residents to one houseboat per property.  Mayor Greg Hagy told the 14 people present for the vote that it became an issue when one resident parked 4 houseboats on their shoreland, restricting other’s views.

Two exemptions exist.  One, if a resident would like a free permit, they can park a second on their shore for 14 consecutive days (or 30 calendars days).  If a resident has a second, adjoining lot of 100 feet or more, they can park a second on that property.  The vote was 5-0.
