Houseboats would make a large target, but no larger than any other structure. The houseboat does have the advantage of being mobile, surrounded by a moat, and near plenty of water
I see a lot of floating cabins on the Stikine River and some in protected bays and inlets. A compromise between a houseboat and an ocean going vessel that you might be interested in is a Higgins Army T-boat.
Here is a link to a craiglist add for one that is going for 40k, nice boat and like the add said it is somewhat bullet proof AND nuke proof O_o
