pontoon boats are good because you dont really find a lot of used ones, but when you do, they are pretty cheap.

my uncle is lookin into them also. found a 24-26 footer on Clists with an upperdeck, $10,000. but the upperdeck doesnt clear some things around his lake house

My mother was like "those things are stupid, they are only good for getting drunk and fishing off of!"

I then reiterated that I really wanted one. I mean if the motherfucker runs how hard could it be to fix it up. It looks like one of those things your friends would line up to help you work on. (with the understanding they got drunk on it too)

i've actually waterskiied (with 2 skiies, anyway) behind a v-hull party barge.

I'm not sure who was pulling who. He pulled me forward; I pretty much dragged the boat across the lake when I pulled to the side, though.

My parents boat has a force motor on it and that motor has been a POS. I was not sure if there was maybe a quality difference between the Chrysler Force motors and the Mercury ones. This one is apparently a Mercury motor and the older ones were Chrysler. I have always heard that Chrysler made the shittiest outboard motors ever.

Some have poorly designed and engineered components that make them prone to problems too.

Funny this got bumped, the wife and I are looking for one now. We think we want a tri-toon, 150hp or greater, maybe 22-25ft. Have not found many dealers in central/eastern NC for pontoons.

does Chatlee not carry a lot of Pontoons? It may not be their target market. That's where I got my I/O.



also, a neighbor on our lake just upgraded to a Tri-toon with a 300hp Mercury. It's got a wrap on it that makes the whole thing look like a floating Monster Energy can. Not sure the maker, i'll check it out this weekend and report back.

Chatlee is about the only dealer we have found that is close to us. There are some around Lake Norman but thats a long drive for us. We are in Selma.

Winds at the coast on average whip up the sound way worse than Jordan/Kerr/Gaston/Norman/Falls. You see pontoons out there but it really ain't the boat you want most days.

no branding, but you can definitely tell what it's modeled after. what's funny is he actually traded in a really nice pontoon that looked like a big budweiser can

I used to see tons of pontoon boats in the Pamlico Sound growing up.

Didn't get any pics today. I had the kids with me, 3 and 8 months, so we were trying to get in and out without wasting to much time. Completely forgot to take a picture.
