  • Pontoon Re-build

    I have a pontoon with a 8x16 deck. the deck is rotten and i am planning on a total strip-down and re-build.

    I tried to add photos and got the following error "You are not authorized to create or remove attachments."

    I am on Forestry Form under the same user name

    Avoid posting re-directs and links in the 1st post of a topic.

    You need to make 3 posts before you can post pix.

    Make 2 more and follow the suggestions found here
    http://forums.iboats.com/forum/forum...pload-tutorial

    Avoid option 3, and for sure avoud using Photobucket here or anywhere else online.

    Just post something like

    For pix2
    For pix 3
    And then you'll be good to go. Also note in the pix tutorial that there is a size limit on uploaded pix, @700KB IIRC

            i will use a grid to explain where things are.
            example, 6-3 is a removable table in green
            Motor on left
            small white circles are swivel seats, 2-1, 2-7, 4-7, 14-2, 14-6
            small green circles are for shade umbrellas
            red rectangles are bench seats
            simple kitchen is at 7-7
            captains council is on bottom edge

              Looks like an awesome project! Like your ideas regarding floor plan as well. Not so sure about the shade umbrellas, struggling to visualize those. But might warm to that plan after seeing them in place.

                the pontoon is going to be used by my dad and me. he is 85 and I want to keep him shaded and cool
                the umbrellas are the pole type used on patios

                the pontoon has been put on hold for now. other projects have higher prioritys;
                3000 feet of fence
                3 lean-toos to add to the pole barn
                chicken coop
                Firewood
                greenhouse = two harbor freight 10x12 placed end to end, with all mods and re-enforcement
                etc,etc,etc,etc,etc,
