Ok heres the deal, last year I bought a lemon of a boat (not by choice), I liked it because it was a 20ft with lots of room for the kids and wife. Well every time we were out on the water no one really had fun because of all the problems it gave us. So now I am deciding on a pontoon. I get kinda eager to buy one when I think of relaxing with the family, swimming, and fishing with all that room. Then again can you really do some seriouse fishing in one? Also lot of big water over here, can a pontoon reach higher speeds? Help me out what do you think.
