I think that every time Huck is on shore something bad inevitably happens.  Also whenever Huck is on shore someone always tries to take care of him, but also to force him into their way of thinking.  Huck prefers the freedom of being on a raft to having a real home on land.  On the raft Huck is free of the judgement of society, and he and Jim can be friends. There are fewer disputes and less problems on the raft
