A few years ago I decided to make a pontoon boat. I’ve included a link to an online site called Instructables that shows the steps to build it. I live in a fairly rural area so with few exceptions materials comes from home depot and walmart. I just thought I’d post this as a point of interest. Hey, it’s made of wood!
points of interest:
It’s electric, Four 35 lb thrust motors, 8 marine batteries.
It’s floatation is 2400 soda bottles
It’s made of wood so maybe it fits on LJ’s?
It has a carved dragon’s head that is tied into the steering and turns in the direction the boat turns.
Oh, It’s great for fishing. I love to fish. I’m bad at it though.
I’m thinking of pulling it out of the water for the first time in 5? years for maintenance.
