WE FINALY GOT OUR PONTOON PUT TOGETHER. WE GOT 35MPA OUT OF THE BEAST. IT WON'T TAKE US ALL DAY TO GET AROUND POWELL. WITH THE 4FT FRONT DECK, LOTS OF ROOM TO CAST TO THE BOILS .
Why? Did you have a bad weld? Curious since I have begun playing with aluminum boat building myself in the last year or two.THE CENTER TOON FILLED WITH WATER AGIN. WE HAD THE BOAT.
Yeah, 1/8 is about the smallest I can weld myself without a backer plate. (Miller dual gun MIG)THE OTHER PONTOON WAS A ROUND ONE WE BOUGHT WAS TO SMALL AND THIN FOR THE WIEGHT WE CARRY. WAS UP AT PLEZ ONE DAY AND HAD A BIG WAVE PICK US UP AND SLAMMED US AND BENT IT. COULDN'T KEEP IT FROM LEAKING AFTER THAT. THE NEW ONE IS 3/16 THICK. A LITTLE HEAVY BUT TOM LIKES TO OVER ENGINER. IT'S EASER TO WELD. WE HAD A FRIEND COME OUT AND WELD THE SECTIONS TOGETHER. HE GOT EVERY THING SET UP FOR US. AFTER THAT WITH A LITTLE PRACTICE WASN'T TO BAD. I TOOK WELDING CLASSES ABOUT 25 YEARS AGO. WE ALSO PUT TUBES IN EVER SECTION WITH A PUMP IN CASE WE GET ANY LEAKS.
