a buddy of mine and myself are looking at buying a fixer upper pontoon boat. we plan on converting it to a sort of base camp (we both allready have good fishing boats). we found a toon for sale that we think will fit the bill. it is 24' long, with a 60 horse 2 stroke suzuki-98 model. the trailer had the springs, hubs, and tires replaced last summer. the guy who is selling it was using it to put pilings in for piers and bulkheads. therefore it has no roof, and no seats, just an open deck with rails, and steering console. the guy was asking 2500$. we offered 1000$, and he told us he would sell it for 1500$. i am going to go look at it tonight after work. my buddy and i both have baby's, so we dont get a lot of time for pleasure. for whatever reason, my wife Amy doesnt think 10 months old are ready for riding on my boat (18'cc g3). our theory is that we can put this thing in a storage unit about a mile from my house, where we can work on it. (installing seats and some sort of roof, as well as a makeshift toilet). then we can get a slip for it for around 50$ a month after we have it fixed the way we want it. we figure that even if he only got to use it once a month, and i only got to use it once a month, it would still be worth it. my questions are? do yall think it is worth it? what are some things we should look for, as far as potential problams with the boat itself? and is it possible to build a roof/sundeck on the top? also, is it ok to leave a toon in a wet slip[ for long periods of time? any and all advice is appreciated. thank yall, j.d.
