    I am thinking about building a little 8x5 pontoon boat just to rod and reel fish out of. Any suggestions or things to look for or possible modifications to my original plans while i am in fabrication? I am open to ideas


    THANKS!!!!

    what are you building the pontoons from? are you putting a big motor on the back? if so how do you plan to support the transom. boats are rated for max horsepower for a reason, nothing like a big motor on the deck with you. of course marine grade plywood, or as most aluminum boats are today, all aluminum decking, last longer. plus my brother in law came up with this idea, rhino liner vs carpet if desired. last longer plus no skid/slip.
